Administration within Intermodal Transportation Division (ITD), acting under the authority and requirements of Arizona Revised Statutes 11-951 through 11-954 and 28-401, prepares written agreements when exercising joint powers common to political subdivisions of the State.
Joint Project Administration (JPA) is designated as the responsible authority for all intergovernmental agreements or contracts contemplated under ARS 11-952,
which includes Joint Project Agreements, Intergovernmental
Agreements, Letters of Intent, Understanding or Agreement; and
Memorandums of Understanding or Agreement, private sector
Joint Project Agreements are primarily utilized as a vehicle to provide for the exchange of funds between the Department and other agencies or organizations, or to memorialize in writing any agreement of the parties. Joint Project Agreements (JPA) and Private Sector Agreements (PSA) are essentially the same and carry the same statutory requirements as an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA). These may involve different parties outside of ADOT and be for different types of arrangements (e.g. projects, private sector or utilities), however, they are all primarily the same.
Coordination of agreement activities requires an awareness on behalf of the Joint
Project Administration and the individual requestor on all matters pertaining to the project, such as bid schedules; Transportation Board meeting dates; payment schedules and other agreement conditions, e.g., exchange of property, in-kind services, inspection of facilities, etc.; and status of projects under construction.
