This case study will review the methodology and technology that Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) used to improve their Combined Transportation Funding Programs (CTFP) Call for Projects initiative.
A Call for Projects occurs biennially to all eligible local agencies within Orange County and encompasses Measure M streets and roads competitive programs. CTFP was created to provide local agencies with a common set of guidelines and project selection criteria for a variety of funding programs.
To improve efficiencies in this process, OCTA decided to create a web-based version of the CTFP that would allow end-users to submit application information and delineate project boundaries from their desktop web browser.
The new CTFP system involved the development and implementation of a re-engineered database, a Web-based user interface for entering and maintaining Project information, and an integrated Internet Map System to support application submittals. The new system also permits improved project review, ranking, and administration by OCTA staff.
