At the request of Chair Campos, at each Authority Board meeting, we will provide district-focused updates on the project delivery status of Authority-funded projects and of San Francisco projects for which the Metropolitan Transportation Commission has asked the Authority, in our role as congestion management agency for San Francisco, to assist with oversight.  We will provide an update on projects in District 6 and citywide non-transit projects (e.g., pedestrian, bike, streets).  Next month we will focus on citywide transit projects.  The enclosed materials include corresponding lists of projects funded by Prop K and non-Prop K sources. We have flagged projects that are at risk or shown indications that they may become at risk of missing a timely use of funds deadline and/or have delivery issues that could result in significant scope, schedule, cost and/or funding changes.   We have invited project sponsor representatives to attend to answer any questions the Board may have.  This is an information item.
