​NOTICE:  External Audit - PPP Forgiveness Postion

Staff from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) worked collaboratively with partners in the architectural and engineering (A/E) consultant industry, other state DOTs, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to determine how and when A/E firms will be required to provide credit to contracts/projects when Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans are forgiven by the Small Business Administration and effectively become grants to A/E firms that receive such loans. Such treatment is required through operation of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 31.201-5 (codified at 48 CFR § 31.201-5), which provides, in part, that "[t]he applicable portion of any income, rebate, allowance, or other credit relating to any allowable cost and received by, or accruing to, the contractor shall be credited to the Government either as a cost reduction or by cash refund."

On April 14, 2021, KYTC sent the Kentucky Division of the Federal Highway Administration a list of questions in connection with PPP loan forgiveness. FHWA headquarters staff have communicated their views on the issues through presentations and discussions with various state DOT auditors, including KYTC staff, and the FHWA issued Memorandum HCFB-30 on March 24, 2021 to provide further guidance and clarification. Accordingly, we have reached the following conclusions and recommended practices regarding the application of credits for PPP Loan forgiveness to KYTC A/E contracts.

FHWA PPP Memo

NOTICE:  2020 Prequalification Criteria and Instructions Update
 
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has posted revisions to the Prequalification Criteria and Instructions document, which serves as the basis for determining minimum eligibility of firms within each service category. Each firm that desires to retain prequalifications or become prequalified with the Cabinet in any new service area must submit a full prequalification application prior to response to advertisement. These prequalifications are to be submitted electronically rather than via hard copy as in the past. The website to visit to submit prequalifications is https://apps.transportation.ky.gov/professionalservices.
 
Each firm must submit an updated Prequalification Application (TC 40-1 form) for review prior to the firm's annual renewal date. It is the sole responsibility of the firm to initiate a renewal of its prequalification with the Cabinet. If the firm makes no effort within thirty (30) days of its annual renewal date, then the firm is automatically removed from the Cabinet's listing of prequalified consultants. The request should include a Certification of Professional Liability Insurance, a Certificate of Workers Compensation, an Employment Insurance policy, and a Financial Statement. These documents shall be uploaded for review by Professional Services staff and retained for compliance.
 
Please review the links below for further details and information:
 
The Division of Professional Services anticipates this document will remain until December 2021 when the next updates become available prior to the 2022 full renewal cycle.
 
Note: These reference documents will also permanently be available under the Prequalification tab at the top of this website.
