The Local Programs Management Office (LPMO) provides guidance and oversight to Local Government Agencies (LGA) that receive federal or state funds to implement a project, program, or study. LPMO establishes standard operating procedures for those projects that are administered by an LGA.
WHAT IS A LOCALLY-ADMINISTERED PROJECT?
LGA programs and projects receive federal or state money based on the recommendations of Municipal or Rural Planning Organizations (MPOs and RPOs), NCDOT Program Areas, and Board of Transportation Members. LGAs are responsible for carrying out the design and construction of projects, or implementation of programs.
WHAT IS NCDOT'S ROLE?
NCDOT's role is to advise, approve and oversee the proper expenditure of funds by an LGA on an eligible project or program. NCDOT is committed to establishing appropriate oversight in order to ensure the best use of public funds and compliance with all applicable state and federal regulations.
