Federal Certification 2019
The MPO has been recertified by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA)! The certification site visit took place at the MPO on April 8-9, 2019 where a number of topics were discussed between MPO and FHWA/FTA staffs. See below for a list of topics that were used in certification consideration.
Special thanks to all of our participating partners and those who provided feedback online or in person! On October 28, 2019, the federal certification team recertified the agency for another 4 years. For the 2019 Certification Report, please click the image below:
Every four years our partners at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct an evaluation of the Broward MPO as part of their Transportation Management Area (TMA) Certification Review of this area. The evaluation includes everything our agency works on from transportation planning to public outreach to the financial health of the agency.
AGENDA for Site Visit April 8, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. & April 9, 2019 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (if needed)
The MPO has also created electronic versions of the Federal agenda on the Agendas & Minutes page of its website. The PDF versions of these agendas can be found here (for April 8) and here (for April 9).
Public feedback is an essential part of this review. It’s your chance as someone who may live, work, or play in Broward to provide direct input on the transportation planning process.
You have the opportunity to let us know what you think.

Every four years the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a Federal Certification Review of the Broward MPO. The main purpose of the review is to certify that the Broward MPO is satisfactorily meeting the planning requirements as defined in federal laws and regulations. This process also provides FHWA and FTA the opportunity to add value to the Broward MPO's planning process through the sharing of best practices, techniques, and/or technology.
The last review took place on May 4 and 5, 2015.
