Joint Project Adminstration
Agreements between the state and nongovernment agencies are JPAs. Agreements between the state and local government agencies are IGAs.
Submit a JPA request prior to the start of the project. The IGA/JPA must be EXECUTED before the project funding will be authorized.
The JPA Launch System is no longer used to request agreements and is used as a reference, read-only tool. The Comprehensive Agreement Resource (CAR) has replaced the JPA Launch System.
CAR is a ADOT internal Web-based system and can be found at http://car/. A Computer Access Request Form (CARF), found on the ADOT intranet, will need to be filled out, signed and submitted to obtain submitter role access.
If the Scope of Work responsibilities, project costs and/or funding amounts change, then an amendment is needed. The Amendment Request Form will need to be filled out and emailed to [email protected].
On average, it takes 120 days to process an agreement from initiation to execution.
