Title: Conclusions of Report Pursuant to Section 20(b) of Executive Order 14074
Description: Pursuant to Section 20(b) of Executive Order 14074, Advancing Effective, Accountable Policing and Criminal Justice Practices To Enhance Public Trust and Public Safety, DOT is making the conclusions of its review of its law enforcement-related grantmaking operations and the activities of its grant recipients publicly available.
To conduct its review, OST, together with FHWA, FTA, FMCSA, and NHTSA, reviewed the Department’s practices for implementation and administrative enforcement of Title VI as it pertains to law enforcement-related grantmaking operations and activities. This was done in three stages: a survey of Operation Administrations (OAs), an evaluation and assessment of implementation and administrative enforcement, and separate discussions with each OA on findings, conclusions, and proposed recommendations. From this review, DOT made the following recommendations to improve the Department’s implementation and administrative enforcement of Title VI:
- Ensure appropriate and consistent collection of necessary Title VI compliance documentation during the pre-award assessment and post-award period.
- Assess existing resources and improve DOT grant recipient experience, including technical assistance, addressing gaps in recipient and subrecipient compliance, and improving Title VI online content provided by each Operating Administration.
- Ensure consistent Title VI standards and practices across the organization, such as developing a uniform provision for inclusion in applicable Title VI compliance documentation that covers a primary recipient’s obligation to monitor their subrecipients for compliance with Title VI.
