Airport Capital Improvement Plan

What is the Capital Improvement Plan?

The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a 10-year planning document, published by Caltrans every odd year. The CIP encompasses capital improvement and planning projects in California’s publicly owned airports. To be eligible for a State-funded Airport Improvement Program (AIP) matching grant or Acquisition and Development (A&D) grant, an airport project must be listed in the most current CIP.

How do I Participate in the CIP?

Planned Projects that fall within the designated State Fiscal Years are entered online at the Caltrans Airport IQ System Manager (Caltrans ASM) database by the airport manager or representative. Additionally, the airport manager or representative must print and sign an Airport Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP) data sheet for each fiscal year (generated from the ASM database) and mail it to:

Office of Technical Services and Programs
Division of Aeronautics
California Department of Transportation
PO BOX 942874
Sacramento, CA 94274

How Do I Access and Use the Database?

To access Caltrans ASM, use the username and password that was provided in the CIP invitation letter to your airport and follow the instructions provided in the Quick Start Guide. After entering project information into the database, print a hard copy of the ACIP data sheets for each fiscal year, sign, and mail to the Division of Aeronautics.  If your credentials are not working or if your airport did not receive the CIP invitation letter, contact the Division of Aeronautics.

When Do I Have to Complete the CIP Entry?

The deadline for participating in the CIP is established each development cycle. Please contact the Division of Aeronautics to verify deadlines. Please make every effort to log in and complete the process early to avoid last minute delays or difficulties.
