Formed in 2003, by the Transportation Permit Efficiency and Accountability Committee (TPEAC), the Multi-Agency Permitting Team (MAP Team) is a partnership between five agencies that work out of the same office to permit state transportation projects in a responsive and transparent manner. Additional information about the MAP Team can be found in the MAP Team Business and Operations Plan (pdf 81kb).

- Effective Mitigation
The MAP Team is physically located at the Department of Ecology’s Northwest Regional Office in Bellevue, Washington. Agencies represented on the MAP Team are:
