The Warranty arrangement shall be made part of the contract of assistance and shall be binding and enforceable by and upon the parties thereto, by any covered employee or his representative.

The Public Body [e.g., your state DOT] hereby certifies that the enclosed Recipients (any employer providing transportation services assisted by the Project) have indicated in writing, acceptance of the terms and conditions of the Special Section 13(c) Warranty. Such acceptance will be sufficient to permit the release of Section 5311 funding in the absence of a finding of non-compliance by the Department of Labor. The letters of acceptance are on file at the following address:
