The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) are currently discussing the future of land use and transportation planning in the region and how to increase collaboration, up to and including full merger.

Merger Update

Since ABAG's Special Executive Board meeting on June 16th and the MTC's June 22nd Commission meeting, when both organizations voted to pursue the Option 7 Implementation Action Plan (IAP), the agencies have agreed to extend Management Partners' contract to assist with project management of the IAP implementation process. ABAG and MTC will jointly share the contract cost.

The agencies' senior staff and Executive Directors met and agreed to have the Deputy Directors, Finance Directors and General Counsel of both agencies meet regularly with Management Partners. They are tasked to oversee the preparation of the financial and legal due diligence documents and to begin negotiating the Contract for Services. The Executive Directors will join in as needed and when discussing important policy issues and key deliverables.

Finally, the two agencies are also finalizing the scope of work for an HR consultant. As part of this process, the draft outline of the scope of work is being shared with ABAG's SEIU bargaining unit along with MTC's Committee on Staff Representation (CSR) for their input and comment.
