Project Oversight Committee

The Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization approved the formation of the Project Oversight Committee (POC) in September of 2015.  The committee was formed to:

  • make project selection recommendations and monitor the implementation of the CRTPO’s direct attributable funds, and
  • monitor the implementation of projects funded with Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ), Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), and Bonus Allocation funds.

The formation of this subcommittee was a recommendation made by the CRTPO Board in recognition of an increasing amount of locally administered projects that required a consistent tracking effort to ensure that all projects are implemented in a timely manner.

 The POC has assisted in the prioritization and project tracking efforts for the following direct attributable funding sources that have been appropriated to projects throughout the CRTPO planning area:

Funding Name


Bonus Allocation



Congestion Mitigation Air Quality



Surface Transportation Block Grant – Direct Attributable



Transportation Alternatives Program





The POC is comprised of TCC members, NCDOT Division representatives, and local staff from across the planning area. The TCC chair and vice-chair appoint members to two-year terms. The TCC Vice-Chair acts as the chairman of the POC.

Committee Tasks:

Monitoring Projects Funded with the CRTPO’s direct attributable funds:

  • The POC maintains contact with project managers and receives updates, at least quarterly, regarding the project status, including the completion of key milestones toward project completion.
  • The POC informs the TCC and CRTPO Board on the status of projects funded with discretionary funds, and will report annually, as a component of the project tracking process.

Project Selection Recommendations:

  • Prior to a call for projects, the POC reviews scoring criteria, typically in light of feedback received from the Board regarding previous criteria used.
  • The POC solicits feedback from members and may hold special meetings or workshops with CRTPO Board and TCC members in order to facilitate brainstorming and discussion and accurately capture the resulting feedback.
  • The POC drafts scoring criteria modifications based on those outcomes and presents for approval / adoption before a call for projects is issued.
  • Once project applications have been received and scored by their respective ranking and review committee, recommendations are presented to the POC review and discussion, yielding preliminary funding recommendations to present to the TCC and MPO for approval.
