Office of Planning and Capital Programming

 

The Office of Planning and Capital Programming (OPCP) satisfies many legislative and federal mandates for the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Secretary of Transportation.  The Office prepares the State Report on Transportation for the Governor, which includes state and federally mandated documents, including the Maryland Transportation Plan (a 20-year vision for transportation in Maryland), the Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) (a six year capital budget), and the Annual Attainment Report (a report on the performance indicators of the transportation system).  OPCP also coordinates Department wide planning studies as well as serving as lead for the Department on coordination with local and regional transportation planning organizations.  OPCP provides support to various boards and commissions on behalf of the Secretary. The Office supports the Department’s Transit Oriented Development, Sustainable Communities and Bike/Pedestrian Planning and works actively with Maryland's local jurisdictions and private sector. The Office reports directly to the Deputy Secretary.
