Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) describes the transportation planning activities MARC and other agencies propose to undertake during the next fiscal year. The UPWP promotes a unified regional approach to transportation planning in order to achieve regional goals and objectives. It serves to document the proposed expenditures of federal, state and local transportation planning funds, and provides a management tool for MARC and funding agencies in scheduling major transportation planning activities, milestones and products. 

The UPWP details:

  • Who will perform the work.
  • Schedule for completing projects.
  • The result from the project activity.
  • The proposed budget for each activity.

The purpose of the UPWP is to promote a unified regional approach to transportation planning in order to achieve regional goals and objectives. It also serves to document the proposed expenditures of federal, state and local transportation planning funds, and provides a management tool for MARC and the funding agencies in scheduling major transportation planning activities, milestones and products. 

The UPWP is developed by MARC with input from local governments, area transit providers, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT), and the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
