MPO Guiding Documents


Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP)

A Unified Planning Work Program is a statement of work identifying the planning priorities and activities to be carried out within a metropolitan planning area. At a minimum, a UPWP includes a description of the planning work and resulting products, who will perform the work, time frames for completing the work, the cost of the work, and the source(s) of funds.  The Farmington MPO plans it work and budgets for expenditures for two federal fiscal years in one document. This is consistent with NMDOT reporting.

Cooperative Agreement

The Cooperative Agreement (CA) is the basic contract between the NMDOT and the fiscal agents overseeing the MPO. The CA delineates the responsibilities of each organization to carry out the tasks in the Unified Planning Work Program.  The CA for the FMPO is between NMDOT and The City of Farmington, FMPO’s fiscal agent.  The terms of agreement are from 2023 to 2026.
