The HRTPO FY 2022 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) is being amended to account for the following changes:
The budget for Task 9.0, HRTPO Administration has been increased by $11,279 to account for Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5303 funds being carried over from FY 2021.
2. TPO Staff Development and Training
The budget for Task 9.0, HRTPO Administration has been increased by $13,000 to support TPO professional staff development and training. During the pandemic shutdowns, most TPO staff development activities were accordingly curtailed. With greater opportunities for safe travel and training now opening up, limited restoration of these activities, many of which are necessary for maintaining professional licenses and certifications, is endorsed. The Budget for Task 12.0, HRTPO Contingency Funding has been reduced by $13,000.
3. Computer Purchases
The budget for Task 9.0, HRTPO Administration has been increased by $40,125 to support computer purchases and upgrades for TPO staff. Although the FY 2021 UPWP included funding for computer purchases, no new computers were acquired last year as both new work from home contingencies and also needed hardware and software configurations were re-evaluated and scoped. The amendment brings forward the deferred purchases from the previous year as well as supplements the current funding in the FY 2022 UPWP for computer purchases in order to meet the newly defined specifications. The Budget for Task 12.0, HRTPO Contingency Funding has been reduced by $40,125.
