Unified Planning Work Program
The SETRPC-MPO receives federal funds for transportation planning and may also receive state and local funds in order to carry out mandated planning activities. The SETRPC-MPO is required to prepare and publish a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) to document the metropolitan transportation planning activities performed with funds provided under Title 23 United States Code (U.S.C.) and Title 49 U.S.C. Chapter 53.
The UPWP is prepared annually and is a statement of work identifying the planning priorities and activities to be carried out within a metropolitan planning area for a given fiscal year (October 1 through September 30). This document includes a list of the planning task descriptions and resulting products from each associated task, denotes who will perform the work tasks, provides the time frame for conducting the tasks, and identifies the sources of funds for each task.
