A Transition Plan is required to be developed and maintained by all public agencies with 50 or more employees (including both full and part-time employees). A schedule to address deficiencies must be included.
Federal and State project authorizations (using federal/state funding) may be withheld if an acceptable Transition Plan is not already in place.
