2010 Federal Certification Review of the Louisville (KY-IN) Metropolitan Planning Organization
Consistent with 23 U.S.C 134(k)(5) and 49 U.S.C 5303(k)(5), the primary purpose of a certification review is to formalize the continuing oversight and day-to-day evaluation of the planning process. The certification review process ensures that the planning requirements of 23 U.S.C. 134 and 49 U.S.C. 5303 are being satisfactorily implemented. In a broader sense, the certification review process is a valuable opportunity to provide advice and guidance to a Transportation Management Area (TMA), defined as an urbanized area with a population over 200,000, for enhancing the planning process and improving the quality of transportation investment decisions.
While the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) interact with TMA planning officials, State DOTs, Transit operators, etc on a routine basis — reviewing and approving planning products, providing technical assistance, and promoting good practice — the formal assessment during a certification review provides an objective view of the TMA transportation planning process. It can serve as a catalyst to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the planning process, and help ensure that the major transportation planning issues facing a metropolitan area are being addressed. In addition, by identifying noteworthy practices, which can be shared with other states, MPOs, and transit operators, the certification process provides an opportunity for continued progress in expanding the art of transportation planning while implementing the regulations. - from http://www.planning.dot.gov/documents/primer/intro_primer.asp#intro.
