The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) incorporates all transportation planning and supporting comprehensive planning activities anticipated in the Bend MPO area each fiscal year. It is intended to provide a framework for the coordination of transportation planning efforts by local, State, and regional agencies through the Bend MPO Policy Board. The UPWP outlines the major work tasks and many specific subtasks. The Bend MPO UPWP includes descriptions of planning tasks, a schedule for completing tasks, and source of funding. The UPWP is updated annually. The UPWP is in on a State Fiscal Calendar from July 1 - June 30 or each year. The majority of the funds that support the UPWP tasks come from Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) and Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) Funds.
The 2020-21 Bend MPO UPWP was reviewed in February 2020 by our federal and state partners. Several meetings were held in 2020 as listed below under Presentations and Outreach. Comments received are included in the appendix of the Draft 2020-21 Bend MPO UPWP.

The Bend MPO budget document provides information about the priorities the Policy Board has set to be accomplished during the next fiscal year, but it also includes information about the day-to-day activities performed by the MPO.
The Budget Message provides a concise discussion of the major priorities of the Bend MPO; the financial and program information included in the Budget and Work Program section of the budget provides more detailed information about the budget for the major work tasks. The Budget Document is foremost a financial plan, providing a numerical road map that matches resources available with the spending priorities established through policy direction and goals established by the Policy Board.
2020 Budget Committee Materials as presented to BMPO Budget Committee:
2020-21 Draft Bend MPO Approved Budget as considered by BMPO Budget Committee. Bend MPO budget committee met on May 5, 2020 and the Bend MPO proposed two alternative budget scenarios. The first scenario of the proposed budget is listed in the “FY20-21 Proposed” column in Figure 6 Line Item Detail. The second budget scenario was discussed, and approved during the Budget Committee Meeting in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to anticipate available funds needed for future years. The approved budget updates in this document reflect a reduction of Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) revenues and a correlating reduction in expenditures in consulting, overtime, employee costs and community outreach. The STBG revenues will be carried over to a future time for projects as needed.2020-21 Bend MPO Proposed Budget(See Approved version for changes) May 5, 2020 Budget Committee Meeting Packet May 5, 2020 Budget Committee Presentation
