RE: EEO Compliance Review Final Report

Dear Mr. Redeker:

Thank you for your response to the Federal Transit Administration's (FT A) letter and preliminary report of findings of the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Compliance Review of the contractors that operate public transit service, under agreements with the Connecticut Department of Transportation (ConnDOT), conducted from December 7-9, 2010. Enclosed is the final report that incorporates ConnDOT's official response, submitted on June 27, 2011.

We are pleased with the progress you have made in responding to the findings of the review as presented in your June 27, 2011 response to the draft report. It appears that ConnDOT's Acting EEO Director, Nancy Bryant, has taken positive steps to improve its contractor's EEO programs by working to correct the deficiencies in the areas of Program Submission, Statement of Policy, Dissemination, Designation of Personnel Responsibility, Utilization Analysis, Goals and Timetables, Assessment of Employment Practices and Monitoring and Reporting Systems.

All corrective actions must be closed within 120 days of the date of this letter. To assure FT A has the opportunity to review and comment on the corrective actions, please submit responses, no later than December 7, 2011. Once we have reviewed your submissions, we will either request clarification or additional corrective action, or will close out the finding if your response sufficiently addresses the FT A EEO Circular's requirement. Please submit your responses to Ms. Heard with a copy to Ms. Griffin at the following addresses:
