The Commission is statutorily required to oversee certain aspects of the WSDOT's Transportation Innovative Partnerships Program, including: approving and reviewing contracts, adopting rules to implement and govern the program, solicit concepts or proposals for eligible projects, and select potential projects based on the proposals received (SHB 1541). To ensure the Commission is able to focus and remain fully engaged throughout the course of its responsibilities over this program, the Commission appointed three of its members to serve on a team that is responsible for overseeing the detailed development of the rules for this program.
