Establish guidance for managing the MARTA transit subsidy program, including detailed policies, procedures, and training for both Contracting Officer’s Representatives and other staff who work on or utilize the transit benefit subsidy program.

Conduct a cost benefit analysis on the use of alternative contracting mechanisms employed by other Federal agencies, such as the Department of Transportation’s Debit-Card program.

Implement supervisory review of the Forms 546, NRC’s MARTA Management System’s “opt-in” data, the MARTA Partner Pages usage data, and MARTA invoices.

Perform reconciliation of transit data including: (1) persons who park at Region II headquarters to persons receiving a transit subsidy benefit, (2) Form 546 to persons receiving a transit subsidy benefit, (3) monthly count of persons “opting-in” in NRC’s MARTA Management System to the MARTA usage report from the MARTA Partner Pages for the corresponding month, and (4) monthly count of persons “opting-in” in NRC’s MARTA Management System to the number of Breeze Cards billed on the corresponding monthly invoice from MARTA.

Maintain records such as the contract file (contract, delegation letters, invoices, communication with vendor) per records retention requirements in the Federal Acquisition Regulation, and maintain Forms 546 for as long as the employee receives a transit subsidy benefit.
