Baseline Agreements

Baseline agreements establish the agreed-upon expected benefits, project scope, schedule, and cost of a project for which the Commission has approved funding. These agreements provide a foundation for project monitoring and reporting. The baseline agreements also identify the agency responsible for reporting on the progress made towards the implementation of the project.

In accordance with the SB 1 Accountability and Transparency Guidelines (PDF), The Commission expects Caltrans to coordinate all baseline agreements for the following programs and projects:

  • Active Transportation Program (ATP) – only projects with a total project cost of $25 million or greater or a total programmed amount of $10 million or greater adopted in the 2017 Active Transportation Program Augmentation and subsequent program amendments and adoptions.

  • Local Partnership Competitive Program (LPP-C) – only projects with a total project cost of $25 million or greater or a total programmed amount of $10 million or greater.

  • Solutions for Congested Corridors Program (SCCP) - all projects

  • State Highway Operation and Protection Program (SHOPP) - only projects with a total project cost of $50 million or greater, or a total programmed amount (in right-of-way and/or construction, support and capital cost) of $15 million or greater adopted in the 2018 State Highway Operation and Protection Program and subsequent program amendments and adoptions.

  • Trade Corridor Enhancement Program (TCEP) - all projects
