The Overall Work Program (OWP) serves as a roadmap or primary management tool for the Inyo County Local Transportation Commission. Each year the Inyo County Local Transportation Commission is required to adopt an OWP concurrent with the fiscal year. An OWP is described on page 2-1 of the California Department of TransportationRegional Planning Handbook as follows:

The OWP introduces the agency and provides an overview of the region, with a focus on its transportation goals and objectives, and the actions to achieve those goals and objectives. The OWP is a scope of work for transportation planning activities, including estimated costs, funding sources, and completion schedules.

The Draft FY 2019-2020 OWP has been developed and released for public review and comment. Any comments are due to on or prior to April 26, 2019.

The FY 2018-2019 OWP was approved by the LTC at their May 16th meeting in Bishop. The LTC did a minor amendment to the OWP by carrying over unused funds from FY 2017-2018 into FY 2018-2019 and the amended FY 2018-2019 OWP can be viewed on the corresponding link. The Regional Transportation Planning Agency 2017 Regional Planning Handbook sets forth the criteria that the OWP must comply with. The Regional Planning Handbook serves as a guide to administering Overall Work Programs, Regional Transportation Plans and their funding sources. The Regional Planning Handbook characterizes the OWP as follows:

      The core regional transportation planning document is the Overall Work Program (OWP) and its core product is the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

The OWP and RTP are directly and inextricably interconnected. OWP activities support the RTP and development of the RTP is an OWP activity. The RTP is implemented through the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) and the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP). Development of the RTIP and FTIP are OWP activities.

The LTC is able to amend the FY 2018-2019 OWP to add or change eligible tasks through April 2019.
