On February 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment act
(ARRA) into law. The Patrick-Murray Administration and MassDOT see ARRA as a tremendous opportunity
to invest in road, bridge, and transit projects that will be an engine of job creation now and in the future. All
across the Commonwealth MassDOT is pushing projects out the door as fast as possible to fix broken
roads and bridges, spark long term economic development, and improve access to transit, bicycling and
walking.

In selecting projects for funding through the recovery act, MassDOT has focused on projects that promote
long term economic development, regional equity, and healthier communities. By focusing on a diverse
set of projects with an eye towards the future, MassDOT hopes to ensure that the stimulus pays off for the
long term. For example, our $15 million investment in Somerville will help jump-start the Assembly Square
project resulting in new commercial and residential development. Long term investments have been
coupled with other "shovel ready" projects, including many needed repaving jobs, to improve the condition
of infrastructure across the Commonwealth and create jobs today.

MassDOT has also "flexed" an unprecedented amount of highway stimulus money to improve transit
across the Commonwealth, including a green multi-modal transit center in Greenfield that will serve as a
hub for regional transit and rail service, and bus enhancements to improve service and reliability on some
of the MBTA’s busiest bus routes. This diverse set of projects will create jobs beyond construction in
design, engineering, and support.

With ARRA funds has come an important focus on performance and transparency. Please track our
progress and stay updated by visiting MassDOT’s recovery website at www.mass.gov/massdot/recovery
where we recently unveiled a new interactive map to search for active ARRA projects throughout the state.
To date, our emphasis on streamlining and performance has reduced the average time from project
advertisement to project aware and notice to proceed from 120 days to 46. By focusing on streamlining
the process, projects are getting started faster and jobs are being created sooner.

As of November 30, 2009, we have advertised $206,942,114 of projects, and spent $29,419,919,
creating 3,827 jobs. The following pages highlight the important metrics MassDOT is focused on to ensure
that recovery projects are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible.

EMPLOYMENT STATISTICS
The following statistics demonstrate the impact of ARRA funds on putting people back to work across
Massachusetts.

                                                           April               May                           June      July      August     September October     November

Total Payroll Value                                        $3,377 $230,337                                   $788,771 $515,849 $1,114,605 $1,150,770 $1,240,763 $753,557
Full Time Equivalents                                           1       40                                          90        83        174         179       187        109
Individuals Paid by ARRA                                       16      218                                         363       396        709         841       808        452

How these statistics are calculated: MassDOT is required to report to Federal Highway on the progress of
spending ARRA funds and job impact. To ensure consistency, we have used the statistics submitted to
Federal Highway for this report.

Contractors use a web-based system to submit payroll and work hour information to MassDOT for all
awarded projects. Any subcontractors working for prime contractors are also required to report through
this system. It is important to explain how these numbers are calculated.

Total Labor Hours: Total labor hours are calculated based upon payroll data submitted to MassDOT. This
number includes office, construction, and other support personnel. This number is the total number of
actual hours worked on ARRA projects.

Total Payroll Value: Total payroll value is calculated based upon payroll data submitted to MassDOT. This
number includes office, construction, and other support personnel. This number is the total number of
dollars paid by contractors to workers on ARRA projects.

Full Time Equivalents: The number of full-time equivalent employees is calculated by applying worked
hours to a full employment year totaling 2,080 hours. For purposes of this report, we divided 2,080 into
                                                                                                                                                    MassDOT ARRA ScoreCard – December 2009 – Page 3
the calendar year to apply this formula month-by-month (2,080/12months = 173.33 Hours per month).
Therefore, an employee working 172 Hours in a month would not be counted as an FTE.

Individuals Paid with ARRA Funds: This number is a count of total number of individuals who are paid with
ARRA funds in a given month. So if Employee A works 10 hours on an ARRA project, they are counted as
an individual being paid with ARRA funds that month.

ARRA: Shovels in the Ground
The following table shows all ARRA projects for which money has been obligated to date. Note, that not all
projects have been advertised, awarded to a contractor, or started. The following chart includes:
   • Amount Obligated: The amount of money that is set aside to fund each project. Obligated money
        not spend is de-obligated and set aside for another project.
   • ARRA Spent: The amount of money spent on each project through November 30, 2009.
   • Ad Date: The date the project was advertised to contractors for bids.
   • Award Date: The date the contract for a particular project was awarded to a contractor.
   • Days between Ad and NTP: The number of days between project advertisement and a contractor
        being given a notice-to-proceed to start work. A Notice-to-Proceed is essentially when a contractor
        can get started on a project.
   • NTP Date: The date on which a contractor receives a notice-to-proceed. A Notice-to-Proceed is
        essentially when a contractor can get started on a project.
   • Anticipated Completion Date: The estimated date by which a project will be complete.
   • % Complete: A measure of the progress of work as defined by the Engineer assigned to supervise
        the project.
   • Contractor Jobs Created: A count of the individual workers assigned to the project as reported by
        the contractor and their subcontractors.

ARRA: MBTA Recovery Report
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), approved by Congress and signed by
President Obama on February 17, 2009, serves as a key component of the President’s economic recovery
plan for the nation. Through ARRA the MBTA expects to receive approximately $232 million in formula
grant funds from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) for capital projects, as well as an additional $41
million of ARRA highway funds that MassDOT has proposed to “flex” to the MBTA for transit projects. This
is a tremendous opportunity for the Authority and its customers; providing an infusion of federal funds that
can be used to initiate and/or accelerate projects that may not have otherwise been done due to a lack of
capital funding.

In selecting projects for ARRA funding, the MBTA focused on those that could be implemented quickly
while creating jobs, addressing regional transportation priorities and providing long-term benefits for the
Authority’s customers across all transit modes and geographic regions. Working closely with MassDOT, the
Boston Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the FTA and the Authority’s Board of Directors,
seventeen projects have been selected and approved for ARRA funding to date. These projects, totaling,
$164 million, include:

   •   $36 million for vehicle procurements, including 25 hybrid buses and 108 RIDE paratransit vans
   •   $26 million for bus service improvements; which include Silver Line service to South Station,
       Dudley Station improvements, bus stop and facility enhancements
   •   $50 million for Fitchburg Line commuter rail improvements, including double tracking and a new
       interlocking to improve service reliability
   •   $17 million for Haverhill Line commuter rail improvements, including double track and signal
       upgrades
   •   $16 million for commuter rail improvements to stations, bridges and facilities systemwide
   •   $18 million for transit station improvements, including Back Bay Station ventilation, emergency
       tunnel signage, bicycle parking facilities and right-of-way safety improvements

An additional $68 million of ARRA projects are currently proceeding through the FTA grant approval
process, which can take up to two months to complete. Eight capital projects totaling $50 million focus on
“state of good repair” and safety initiatives throughout the transit system (e.g., emergency station lighting,
pump stations, track reconstruction, station platform and structural repairs, power substation control
batteries, station roof replacement). $18 million will also be used for operating assistance, to help
maintain service levels. It is expected that these projects will be approved by early February 2010.

In just the first few months since the initial $164 million of ARRA funding was approved, 108 new RIDE
vans are in operation, Silver Line service has been extended to South Station, the first of the hybrid buses
are on the assembly line, and work is underway on all of the other projects. As of December 15, the MBTA
has entered into commitments (i.e., contracts, material and equipment purchase orders) for over $62
million, or 38% of the ARRA funds approved to date, and has hired 25 “temporary service project”
employees from local union halls to initiate the work. Given the nature of the rail, bridge and commuter rail
station work, construction activity and spending will peak after the winter months.

Notes:

•     This list of "phase 1" transit projects includes all those approved by FTA to date. A second set of "phase 2"
      projects have been submitted to FTA and are currently in the DOL certification process - which can take up to 60
      days.
•     For transit, "obligation" refers to execution of the ARRA grant. As such, obligation date and amount reflects
      execution of FTA grant which includes each ARRA project.

                                                                                                                      MassDOT ARRA ScoreCard – December 2009 – Page 11
•   Total commitments include all contract awards for design, construction and construction management, as well
    as approved purchase orders for MBTA-procured materials.
•   Due to the nature of these transit projects, it can take several weeks to proceed from grant approval, to contract
    award/PO, to work initiation/material delivery, to invoice submittal, to actual payment. As a result, total
    commitments (e.g., contract awards) are a better indicator of progress early on in the ARRA program.
•   Total spending includes design, construction, material procurement and project oversight costs. It can exceed
    total commitments as a result of "non-contract" spending, such as MBTA project management and field
    inspection.
•   Current anticipated completion date reflects most recent FTA schedule milestone reporting, submitted on
    10/10/09.
•   The direct job hours and salary costs are consistent with federal reporting requirements (e.g., Section 1512) and
    are reported as of 11/30/09.
•   Job hours and salary costs for consultants and contractors are based on invoices submitted as of 11/30/09
    (which include their labor reports). It does not reflect work performed but not yet invoiced. Benefit costs are not
    included here.
