      California Transportation Commission Reporting

      The California Transportation Committee (CTC) created reporting guidelines and an intake tool to meet the reporting requirements outlined in SB 1., which include the Road Repair And Accountability Act Of 2017, Local Streets And Roads Funding Annual Reporting Guidelines. These guidelines outline the process for cities to submit their project lists and expenditure reports to the CTC to establish eligibility for receiving SB 1 funds.

      Each year, every city must submit a project list, adopted by resolution, of projects to be funded with SB 1 funds by May 1 to the CTC's via their online SB 1 project list intake tool

      In addition to submitting the project list, cities must also submit an annual expenditure report by October 1 to the CTC via their online SB 1 expenditure report tool.

      Additionally, the CTC is required to create several annual reports based on the information received from the reporting requirements set forth in the Road Repair And Accountability Act Of 2017.
