As a recipient of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) funds, TxDOT's Public Transportation Division is responsible for usage oversight, this includes monitoring Subrecipients that purchase real property, rolling stock, and equipment when TxDOT is the Direct Recipient. If the Direct Recipient is another entity, FTA is responsible for asset oversight.

As part of TxDOT PTN’s obligation to FTA, oversight includes asset inventory, maintenance schedule reviews (facility, equipment, and vehicle), bi-annual asset inspections, annual insurance checks, and asset disposition. The following items are monitored to ensure each asset purchased with taxpayer funds is used within its original purpose, used in a manner that prevents early disposition, and used in a method allowable under Federal and State guidelines.
