TransNet is the half-cent sales tax for local transportation projects that was first approved by voters in 1988, and then extended in 2004 for another 40 years. Administered by SANDAG, the program has been instrumental in expanding the region’s transportation system, reducing traffic congestion, and bringing critical transportation programs to life. During the 60-year life of the program, tens of billions in TransNet and matching federal, state and local dollars will be distributed among highway, transit, and local road projects.
A key component of TransNet is public accountability. The TransNet Dashboard gives residents timely information on when projects will be delivered. This interactive tool is a key element of the comprehensive KeepSanDiegoMoving.com website — the region’s window to in-depth information on the TransNet Early Action Program. In addition, SANDAG issues an annual report to keep the public updated on the progress of TransNet funded projects.
Partnering with Caltrans, MTS, and NCTD, SANDAG is advancing several projects. The TransNet Project Office tracks and manages changes to cost, scope, schedule, and budget to ensure adherence to the TransNet Ordinance and approvals made by the Board of Directors. The Project Office coordinates and resolves program-wide issues with project partners at Caltrans and other agencies, reviews and assesses key assumptions in the TransNet Plan of Finance, makes recommendations regarding the implementation of additional phases of work or new projects, and assesses and recommends options due to challenges and opportunities to deliver capital and funding programs.
In close collaboration with project managers and corridor directors, the Project Control Analyst will develop, monitor, and maintain schedules and budgets for capital transportation projects, and participate in technical financial and project management analyses related to the SANDAG capital improvement program.
This is a Limited-Term employment opportunity and is expected to be funded through June 2020. Limited-Term employees are considered to be “at-will” and receive many of the benefits of Regular employees.
SANDAG rewards the efforts of its employees with a comprehensive compensation package. Competitive salaries are supplemented with a flexible offering of health, financial security, and time-off benefits to meet the work and life needs of employees and their families.
