Innovation Consortium (TTTF, TxSTIC)

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) needs support to manage the Innovation Consortiums – projects or programs that facilitate collaboration, dissemination, and development of innovative transportation technologies and practices. The Innovation Consortiums include three previous standalone programs: Texas Technology Task Force (TTTF), the Texas State Transportation Innovation Council (TxSTIC), and the Everyday Counts (EDC) program. Closer coordination of these programs will further help to accomplish each programs individual goals. The TTTF, authorized by Texas’s 83rd Legislature General Appropriations Bill, S.B. No. 1, Item 44, VII-31, was established in 2013 to enhance its vision for the future of Texas’s transportation systems. The TTTF began with a core knowledge group of transportation experts and has grown into a successful program that is responsible for managing the Emerging Technology Portfolio, publishing white papers on critical topics, delivering strategic plans such as the Technology Utilization Plan, developing communication strategies, and conducting TTTF meetings with in-depth technical analysis. The TxSTIC was the 51st STIC established on the 22nd of March 2016, by the STIC State of Texas Charter and renewed the 20th of November 2019. The TxSTIC was established to foster a collaborative culture for the rapid implementation of ready to deploy and beneficial innovations and technologies among stakeholders to efficiently deliver a safe and effective transportation system to the State of Texas. The TTTF, TxSTIC and EDC program, together serve as a catalyst for rapid deployment of nationally and state identified new technologies, strategies, and methods that have already been demonstrated to be successful in real world applications and would lead to improved performance and effectiveness of the transportation system within the State of Texas.
