Accountability is of utmost importance in delivering public transportation investments with public dollars. In order to ensure accountability, transparency and public oversight of all funds collected and allocated under Measure D in compliance with state law, all of the following shall apply: annual reports, annual audits and a taxpayer oversight committee. Decisions regarding implementation of this Ordinance will be made by the Measure D Authority (the Regional Transportation Commission) in public meetings, subject to the Brown Act.

Taxpayer Oversight Committee
The taxpayer oversight committee reviews the annual independent fiscal audits of the expenditure of the Measure D sales tax revenues and is responsible for issuing an annual report on its findings regarding compliance with the requirements of the voter-approved Expenditure Plan and the Ordinance. More information about the oversight committee including meeting agendas is available here:

Audits & Reports

Annual Audits

No less than annually, an independent annual audit shall be conducted of the expenditure of all funds generated by the transportation tax, in accordance with the Expenditure Plan as adopted by the voters in approving the Ordinance on November 8, 2016. The RTC will also prepare a publicly-available annual report on past and upcoming activities and publish an annual financial statement.

Recipient Agency Annual Reports

Each agency receiving Measure D Revenue shall annually adopt, after holding a public hearing, an annual report which includes:

  1. A 5-year program of projects, including information about each of the projects to be funded with Measure Revenues, allocated according to the Expenditure Plan. Local and regional agencies shall submit their program of projects to the RTC in a format that can be easily understood by members of the public.
  2. Description of expenditures of Measure Revenues from the most recently completed fiscal year. The purpose of requiring the most recently completed fiscal year expenditures is to allow the RTC to prepare a comprehensive report to the public on the expenditure of funds generated by the Ordinance.
