The Program and Funding Services Unit of the Active Transportation Section is responsible for the development of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), Project Funding, Financial Plan and Project Accounting.
- STIP development includes providing information, leadership, oversight and guidance to ODOT regions for STIP development processes and activities, project selection and prioritization activities and STIP public involvement activities, while ensuring state and federal requirements for STIP development are met. Additionally, STIP amendments are managed.
- Project Funding requires interaction with ODOT Regions and Divisions and other state agencies in establishing the correct funding for projects. This involves securing federal authorization for projects and special programs and creating billing and expenditure accounts for projects based on that funding.
- The Financial Plan monitors the financial position of both state and local programs by capturing the current funding obligations and showing the planned future project positions.
- Project Accounting includes analyzing and interpreting accounting records to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations and local/interagency agreements. Financial documents are prepared for both the Federal Highway Administration and Local Governments.
