LPA - Local Public Agency
The LPA program is a partnership between Federal Highway (FHWA), Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), and Local Public Agencies (LPA) to develop, plan, and construct projects with Federal, State and Local funds.
FHWA has designated ODOT as the agency in Ohio to administer FHWA's Federal funding program. All phases of these projects shall be done in accordance with the applicable Federal and State Laws and regulation with oversight by ODOT.
When Federal funds are used in consultant contracts, the Federal Highway Administration
(FHWA) requires the Department to comply with rules set out in 23 CFR 172. FHWA issued a
set of updated rules effective June 22, 2015. The rules address program management and
oversight, consultant selection, negotiation, consultant contracts, administration and cost
accounting. The rules also require the Department to ensure that local governments comply with the rules when Federal funds are used in consultant agreements. State Transportation Agencies (STA), and by extension local governments, have one year from the effective date to comply with the new rule. Link to FHWA Rules
