The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is prepared annually and serves as a basis for requesting federal planning funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation as well as a management tool for scheduling, budgeting and monitoring planning activities of participating entities. The UPWP is developed with input from numerous agencies including the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the Central Oklahoma Transportation and Parking Authority, City of Norman Transit, the Oklahoma City Traffic Management Division and other cities included in the regional transportation study area.

The UPWP program is administered by ACOG in accordance with a “Memorandum of Understanding” among ACOG, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), the Central Oklahoma Transportation and Parking Authority (COTPA) and the City of Norman Transit.

ACOG serves as the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Oklahoma City transportation management area, providing a multi-government, multi-agency body for carrying out a continuing, coordinated, comprehensive program of multimodal transportation system planning.
