In this circular, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) provides safety and security guidance for recipients with major capital projects covered by 49 CFR part 633, “Project Management Oversight.” This circular identifies specific safety and security activities that a recipient must perform and document in a Safety and Security Management Plan (SSMP). In this circular, FTA explains that the SSMP is part of the recipient’s Project Management Plan (PMP). As part of the PMP, the SSMP must be updated whenever the PMP is required.
