Solicitation of Applications for Membership on the TransNet Independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee

The TransNet Independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee (ITOC) is seeking qualified members of the public to fill three positions that expire in May 2009 on its seven-member committee in the following categories:

  • A professional in the field of municipal/public finance and/or budgeting with a minimum of ten years in a relevant and senior decision making position in the public or private sector,
  • A professional with demonstrated experience of ten years or more in real estate, land economics, and/or right-of-way acquisition, and
  • A professional with demonstrated experience of ten years or more in the management of large-scale construction projects.

ITOC aids in the implementation of the $14 billion TransNet program, the San Diego region’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements. The TransNet program is administered by SANDAG.

As outlined in the TransNet Ordinance and Expenditure Plan, ITOC provides an increased level of accountability for expenditures. ITOC members are unpaid, but certain expenses are reimbursed. Due to their public service status, ITOC members must meet strict conflict of interest standards. ITOC functions in an independent, open, and transparent manner to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out; and develops positive, constructive recommendations for improvements and enhancements to the financial integrity and performance of the TransNet program. ITOC membership is open to individuals from throughout the region who possess a set of appropriate professional skills and experience. 

More detailed information regarding the ITOC and its responsibilities can be found at www.sandag.org/itoc.  Individuals interested in applying for this ITOC position should contact the SANDAG Public Information Office for an application at jde@sandag.org or (619) 699-1950, or go to www.sandag.org/notices. Applications must be postmarked no later than Monday, February 23, 2009.
