The Authority is responsible for ensuring the completion of a wide variety of projects that were included in the original Measure C Expenditure Plan (as amended) [PDF - 777 KB] and the Measure J Expenditure Plan (Adopted November 2, 2004, as amended through November 7, 2011) [PDF - 1.3 MB]. Some major projects, primarily on state highways, are being developed directly by the Authority. Others are administered by cities, the county or transit districts with funds provided by the Authority.
A Strategic Plan is prepared approximately every two years and programs funds to individual projects in specific years over the upcoming five to seven year period. For projects that have local proponents (city, county, transit districts or other special districts), the Authority enters into cooperative agreements, approves fund appropriation resolutions and reimburses project proponents upon satisfactory billing for conduct of the particular phase of work. For projects on the State Highway System, the Authority works cooperatively with Caltrans by retaining consultants and managing single or multiple phases of the work.
The Authority reviews progress on projects funded by Measure C and/or Measure J through a program management system and a variety of reports such as Monthly Project Status Reports and the Quarterly Project Funding Plans.
