Regional agencies and governments submit projects to CAMPO for inclusion in the TIP because any project requesting federal transportation funds must be included in the TIP before they can move towards implementation. The local government that submits a project for inclusion in the TIP must be able to demonstrate that funding is available to support the activity.  The projects go through a scoring process using objective criteria and then are approved for inclusion in the TIP by the Transportation Policy Board.
