Regardless of project source (e.g., UPM, MAG, PAG, etc.), LPAs must contact the appropriate ADOT section project manager (PM), who provides the TRACS number, to request the use of one of the ADOT-Administered on-call contracts.

LPAs must complete ECS Local Public Agency Review Checklist (referred to as LPA Review Checklist), attach supporting documentation and send the electronic versions (MS Word) of the documents, if available, to the ECS staff listed below.

ECS will conduct an SA review using information from the LPA Review Checklist and may contact the LPAs for additional information or for clarification, if necessary. After the review, ECS sends a Review Memo to the ADOT LPA Process Manager for SA application status (i.e., conditional approval, final approval, etc.). An LPA's final approval is granted after the LPA addresses items, if any, listed in the conditional approval memo.
