The MAG Management Committee provides a key role in the policymaking decisions at MAG. The Committee is responsible for receiving input from technical committees, analyzing the technical and policy implications, and providing recommendations to the MAG Regional Council. The Management Committee consists of the chief administrators from each member agency, such as the jurisdiction's city or town manager, the county manager from Maricopa County, and the chief administrative officer of each Native American Indian Community. The director of the Arizona Department of Transportation and the executive director of the Regional Public Transportation Authority represent their respective agencies on transportation issues that are brought before the Management Committee.
