The Transportation Provider Application was approved, what’s next?
After you are notified that the application has been approved, the Transportation Provider will be sent a contract to be signed by the Provider and MART. This will then initiate the “Contracting” (pre-work) Phase. Once all pre-inspection trainings, office audit/inspections, and Vendor Portal trainings are completed, then the Transportation Provider will enter the “Contracted” (work assigned) Phase.
MART has composed two more FAQ (frequently asked questions) pages – one for each phase which are linked below. These FAQs also contain links to required forms and some mocked-up examples.
