Manager, Office of Capital Programs (DVRPC)

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is the Philadelphia region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization. We believe DVRPC is a place to work, learn, and create a career in a professional and stimulating environment that values diversity, innovation, and bringing your best self to work. If your background and experience match the following vacancy, we would like to hear from you.

This is a highly responsible technical and professional management and supervisory position to direct the Office of Capital Programs which is responsible for providing leadership in ongoing transportation project development activities and the creation and maintenance of the region’s multi-modal federally and state funded capital infrastructure program. This position requires the ability to understand dynamic federal and state funding programs and parameters for transportation planning and programing and how they are inter-related to the overall regional planning process. Management of staff both directly and in the context of multi-disciplinary project teams is required, in addition to collaborating with federal, state, and member government partners for all tasks. An employee in this capacity is responsible for effective communication through writing and speaking, with an attention to detail in reviewing required communications while meeting strict and frequent deadlines.

Specific assignments will include the supervision of the development (aka “Update”) of a new Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for PA and NJ each year, in alternating years. This development process will involve a considerable number of meetings and development of support materials that are produced by staff. Once the TIP is in place, the manager will be responsible for leading staff through the amendment and modification process on a monthly basis (aka “maintenance” of the TIP), making sure that appropriate collaboration and coordination occurs with other DVRPC and partner agency staff including but not limited to project development, air quality conformity, long-range plan development, and financial plan input.

Oversight of project development activities requires collaboration and coordination with internal and external staff and partners to help evaluate and prioritize proposals and to provide technical assistance for facilitating cross-agency communications and arriving at a path forward towards implementation. Many of these projects are integrated and comprehensive, exploring multiple transportation modes along with their community context.

Supervision is exercised over a diversified staff of professional, technical, graphical, and clerical employees. Work is performed in accordance with general agency policies and professional standards with results subject to technical review by a Director-Level Supervisor.
