Real solutions to meet genuine challenges. Innovative ideas to take on growing realities. That's the Federal Highway Administration - Leaders in Paving the Way on the Road to Success.
You will serve as an Attorney Advisor in the Office of Chief Counsel (HCC), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and will be responsible for providing advice and counsel to the Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) Joint Program Office (JPO) within the Office of Innovative Program Delivery (OIPD), on complex credit, surface transportation project finance, and legal matters involving multiple creditors under the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (U.S. DOT or Department) TIFIA Credit Program.
The TIFIA Credit Program provides secured (direct) loans, loan guarantees, and standby lines of credit to borrowers seeking to develop major surface transportation projects that meet certain creditworthiness and other eligibility standards. See 23 U.S.C. §§601-609.
The responsibilities of the position involve complex factual and legal matters involving surface transportation project finance, Federal and State law, contractual interpretation, and coordination with FHWA, the Federal Transit Administration and other U.S. DOT modal administrations, State departments of transportation, private concessionaires, and outside counsel on matters of significance to FHWA and the U.S. DOT. Many of the highway, transit, rail, and intermodal projects being financed with TIFIA credit assistance are in excess of $1 billion, with the U.S. DOT providing up to 49% of the total eligible project costs per transaction, generally on a subordinate basis.
You will serve as an Attorney Advisor to the TIFIA JPO and the OIPD in reviewing, advising, and structuring complex credit transactions, and, as a member of the negotiating team, will review, comment, and, often in conjunction with outside counsel, draft revisions to credit agreements and associated legal documents for surface transportation projects awarded TIFIA credit assistance. You may also work on cross-cutting OIPD policy and administrative matters related to innovative procurement, revenue generation and financing strategies.
The ideal candidate is a transactional attorney who has worked on numerous bond and bank financings with multiple creditors with a transaction value of at least $50 million each, is well versed in inter-creditor issues including bankruptcy and secured transactions, and has experience with subordinated debt and mezzanine finance structures. Transactional experience involving transportation user-based revenues is beneficial, as is experience working with Federal or State transportation agencies, municipal issuers, and banking entities, and previous experience working on TIFIA financings.
