Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

The purpose of a Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is to plan and implement a transportation planning work program supporting the goals, objectives and recommendations of the UCTC’s Year 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan. The type of work specified within a UPWP includes a summary of administrative, technical and transportation planning tasks to be performed by UCTC staff. The UPWP is a federal requirement and is updated annually.

The day-to-day activities of the UCTC are supported by 2.5 FTE staff and NYSDOT to ensure the overall planning program is executed in a timely and efficient manner, and in accordance with federal requirements. Ulster County is the host agency for all UCTC-related staffing and planning studies. Staff is housed within the Ulster County Office Building within the Ulster County Planning Department. The UCTC’s budget is embedded within the Ulster County Planning Department’s budget and managed by the Director of the Ulster County Planning Department. Staff, equipment, supplies, rent, consulting studies, and other expenses used to support UCTC staffing operations are 95% reimbursable to Ulster County.
