Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs)
The establishing IGA spells out the purpose, boundaries and powers of PPRTA as well as the allocation of revenues and the composition and powers of the Board of Directors and its officers.
The original establishing IGA was approved by the four member governments in August 2004 before the ballot measure went before the public in November. Following the November 2012 vote to extend the PPRTA capital program from 2015 through 2024, the establishing IGA was revised and called the First Amended and Restated IGA.
PPRTA has a comprehensive IGA with each of the five member governments that outline the roles of each entity. The IGAs include details on:
- the budget process;
- how to handle claims and other liability issues;
- contracting elements, roles, and limitations;
- ownership of projects and other assets; and
- financial and construction reporting requirements.
