The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) presents the annual work program of the Orange County Transportation Council (OCTC). The OCTC is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Orange County, and is the entity responsible for coordinating transportation activities within the County. The UPWP describes the planning and administrative activities programmed to be undertaken during the year. Preparation of the UPWP is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) as the basis for Federal transportation funding to state, regional and local agencies. While the funding for the UPWP is from the Federal government, the annual cycle for the UPWP is based on the New York State fiscal year.
