DRAFT 2020-2021 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)
For the SFY 2020-2021, SRTC is preparing a two-year UPWP, rather than the traditional one-year work plan as the majority of SRTC work tasks are not done on a one-year schedule. Major projects such as the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) update work, Data/Model and Technical Tools update, and studies (such as Division Street Corridor, US 195/I-90, and Freight Strategy) are multiple year efforts. The UPWP can be revised and updated mid-period if needed and monitored by SRTC staff for any needed changes.
Details about the planned tasks such as who will conduct them, the schedule, the resulting products, and the funding must be included. UPWP guidance by WSDOT specifies the narrative and budget information which must be addressed related to: Review of interlocal agreements; Statewide planning efforts and coordination with WSDOT; Production of the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP); Fiscal constraint; and Reporting.

Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)
The UPWP serves as the annual work plan for regional transportation planning projects and is required to be produced every year. It describes SRTC’s programs and identifies duties to be accomplished each year, plus outlines how state and federal funds will be used by SRTC for transportation planning.
Each year the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Federal Highways Administration, and Federal Transit Administration include in the UPWP areas they would like SRTC to address in the work program for the year.
