Read the Full Report Metropolitan Planning Organizations: Options Exist to Enhance Transportation Planning Capacity and Oversight (GAO-09-868)
This e-publication supplements our report GAO-09-868 by presenting the item-by-item results of our Web-based survey
of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), which was conducted between February 3 and April 1, 2009.
The purpose of the survey was to gather information on the roles and responsibilities of MPOs, the federal oversight of
MPOs, and possible ways to improve regional transportation planning. The questionnaire was designed to obtain demographic
and financial information from MPOs, as well as MPO staff perceptions of challenges their organization faces in carrying
out their current responsibilities. The questionnaire also asked about potential options to address those challenges.
Further, the questionnaire included a section requesting respondents’ views on the current federal oversight of MPOs.
