The LTAP steering committee governs the tactical implementation of program activities and the expenditure of program funds. The committee works with the program director to make sure the funding organization's requirements are met.

The steering committee meets at least twice each year to provide direction to and approval of program activities, including annual plans, work programs, and budgets. Committee members are selected based on their interest in contributing to transportation technology transfer. They provide input into identifying local agency training and technology transfer needs and priorities.

Members also review and provide feedback and suggest improvements for LTAP program services and special projects, and they provide LTAP staff with information regarding technology transfer/research implementation opportunities and success stories. In addition, members act as a communication liaison for their respective organizations by identifying partnership opportunities and exchanging information about the state and national LTAP programs.
