The P&P TAC will also review and provide technical input to the performance analysis of Plan alternative strategies.

Meeting agendas will be prepared by SCAG staff in consultation with the chair of the P&P TAC, and be provided to members in advance of each meeting. Minutes of each meeting will also be prepared by SCAG staff.
All agendas and meetings will be made available on the P&P TAC webpage at www.scag.ca.gov/pptac.

All members are expected to attend each meeting in person, via video conference or via teleconference. In the event that a member of the P&P TAC or his or her designated alternate fails to attend two (2) consecutive meetings without an excuse approved by the Chair of the P&P TAC, the member shall receive written notice of such absences and be informed that a third consecutive absence may result in his or her removal from the P&P TAC. If a third consecutive meeting is missed by a member, the chair of the P&P TAC shall have the discretion to remove the member from the P&P TAC. Written notice of any such removal shall be provided to the member, and a separate letter shall be provided to the member's organization informing it of the member's removal and that a vacancy in the P&P TAC has occurred.
