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.

The next TMA Certification Review for the Broward MPO will take place on April 11, 2023. The agenda for the the Review can be found here.

The MPO has also created an electronic version of the Federal agenda with backup material in HTML and PDF format on the Agendas & Minutes page of its website.

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.

Past Federal Certifications

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 April 8 and 9, 2019.

State Certification

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four conducts a standard annual State Certification Review of the Broward MPO.
