Planning Innovation and Technology Deployments at TxDOT

From time to time, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) districts produce ITS and other technology innovations that improve roadway and/or worker safety, roadway efficiency and/or produce cost savings. By failing to recognize and scale these innovations across the state, TxDOT does not receive the full benefit of 25 diverse centers of excellence. This contract utilizes TTI, which is an organization that excels at innovation in and of itself, to investigate innovative district practices and to develop plans at a district and statewide level to share and scale innovation across the state. By harvesting the knowledge already contained within TxDOT, new avenues will open to improve roadway safety, efficiency and produce cost savings. Due to the breadth of TxDOT, these innovations may have very large impacts on the millions of Texans across the state and their visitors. Additionally, by cataloging and bringing together these innovations, divisions and districts can work together to make sure that solutions are developed in such a way that unified systems and interoperability occur throughout the state. This project also complements a wider effort to catalog, share and grow innovation at TxDOT. The end result for Planning for Innovation and Technology Deployments at TxDOT is a programmatic set of documents that compile and recommend innovative ITS and advanced technology roadway projects and system improvements that TxDOT districts can execute, customized to each district. To arrive at this, the consultant team will interact with districts and industry professionals as unique stakeholders across the state and the nation to compile insights of innovative projects that may include data analysis, operational improvements or deployment of advanced technologies along the roadway, among others. The consultant team will develop high level scope and cost estimates for each offered transportation project. The consultant may also be directed to develop a strategy blueprint (goal, purpose, scope, timeline, responsibilities) for how innovation and technology deployment can be progressed as an integral part of TxDOT's functions and to develop evaluation plans and/or templates for Department innovation and technology deployment projects.
