Local Public Agencies Project Guide Training
No dates at this time.
With tighter budgets, local agencies are finding it difficult to move forward with or maintain public access projects within their counties/cities. Federal funds have been set aside for local public agencies (LPA) to continue developing and maintaining safe and efficient transportation systems. Applying for federal aid for a local project, however, can be a daunting task.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), Office of Local Programs (OLP) will be releasing the new Local Public Agency Project Guide in late spring. This training will inform and educate LPA’s about the updated LPA Project Guide. In addition to providing a better understanding of the LPA Project Guide, this course’s main focus will be on explaining the Local Public Agency Project Development Checklist (LPA-PDC) that is required to be completed by the LPA when obtaining FHWA project approval. Not all aspects of the LPA-PDC will apply to every project. Participants in this course will explore past LPA funded projects from various LPA’s in Kentucky as examples of the project types and processes.
The LPA workshop will also discuss the various provisions the LPA must follow to ensure the reimbursement of the federal funds. These provisions include environmental, hiring, design, procurement, construction, reporting, inspection and maintenance requirements.
Other topics to be covered in the workshop will include responsibilities of the LPA, KYTC and FHWA, professional services procurement, conducting project team meetings, competitive bidding and negotiation (when applicable), design specifications and the reimbursement process. The participant will also learn about contacting their KYTC LPA liaison as a resource for further assistance in LPA funding and project management.
This is a six hour course and is approved for DLG County Officials Incentive Program hours.
