Working with VCTC

The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC), which serves as the regional transportation planning agency for Ventura County, is required by Section 99246 of the California Public Utilities Code to triennially designate an entity other than itself to conduct a performance audit of its activities. Operators that receive funding under Article 4 of the TDA are required to have a performance audit. Between fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2016, this includes VCTC, Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD), Thousand Oaks Transit, Simi Valley Transit, and Valley Express. Claimants that receive funding under Article 4.5 or Article 8 are not statutorily required to have a performance audit; however, to enable a comprehensive and objective review that serves the benefit of both the RPTA and the transit provider, performance audits should be conducted of all operators that are allocated funding under the TDA. This would include the County of Ventura, Camarillo Area Transit, Moorpark City Transit, Ojai Trolley, the City of Fillmore, and the City of Santa Paula. Currently there are no Article 4.5 claimants in Ventura County for this audit period.
