We are diligently working on getting the 2017 Operating grant agreements out. Please make sure you process them promptly so we can get everyone on board for January 1, 2017.
A reminder that the consolidated capital call is open until November 30. With the holiday in between, please don't procrastinate. If there are any glitches, we want to be able to resolve them in plenty of time to allow you to submit your requests.
DTR is pleased to be able to participate in the upcoming FTA Region VIII State Network Workshop in Denver, November 15 and 16. This is an opportunity for the states in the region to get together and for staff to network and interact. This is the first time we've been able to do this in a few years and we're excited. This gives DTR staff the opportunity to meet our counterparts from the other Region VIII states and share information and best practices.
For those of you who operate 5311 programs, our consultant and friend, Bev Krieger has announced her retirement from Precision Compliance, the company that CDOT has hired to perform Drug & Alcohol compliance reviews and technical assistance. She has sold the company to RLS Associates, significantly increasing our access to resources. We are extremely pleased that Linda DeHererra will be continuing on with the company, providing a smooth transition and regional knowledge to RLS Associates. We are sad to see Bev leaving the business although we're reasonably certain she will stick around in some capacity.
We wish Bev all the best in her retirement.
Please join us in celebrating the courage and sacrifice of our military servicemen and women this past Friday, November 11 for Veteran's Day and please, be safe out there.
