The GAO has just issued a performance review of the SCASD program, covering grant awards between 2010 and 2014,
It’s 63 pages of sleep-inducing text, but the bottom line is that the GAO is recommending that the DOT be more specific and more consistent in quantifying how they rank application criteria.
The DOT responded that they would provide new guidelines and approaches to selecting awards. However, as of March 2019, the GAO had not received the DOT’s promised outline of such revisions.
Nevertheless, it’s now possible that the DOT will finally issue the 2019 SCASD docket in the near term.
