Analysis and Assessment of the National Performance Management Data

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) laid the groundwork for a comprehensive national-level performance management framework. The first 4 year reporting period began  January 1, 2018, and ended December 31, 2021, and is the first complete set of consistent national-level performance management data. The availability of this data is an opportunity to conduct the first comprehensive analysis and assessment of this unique data set. Research is necessary to: (a) Understand the metrics and perform sensitivity analyses for the 17 transportation performance measures (TPM) for the three performance areas; (b) Document processes being used to establish performance targets and how these influence performance outcomes; (c) Assess the degree to which the performance analysis is influencing project planning and programming; (d) Identify potential revisions to existing performance measures, identify gaps in measures, and develop mechanisms that could address these gaps that would help to set and achieve meaningful outcomes; and (e) Explain the results of the national performance data analysis in a way that can be used to effectively communicate the current performance of the highway transportation system. The objective of this research is to develop and implement a framework to analyze and assess the national performance management data from MAP 21 and the FAST Act to present a more complete performance story of the highway transportation system.
