Security Framework: Fundamentals of Transportation Security for DOTs

The objective of this research is to develop compelling, understandable materials to effectively communicate to state transportation agency leadership such that they are moved to action: (1) the Six Goals for Transportation Security and how they are embedded within the all-hazards NIMS context; (2) to identify within that context the fundamental actions that state transportation agencies can take and have taken; (3) to describe selected resources supportive of those actions; and (4) to describe the role of AASHTO in providing national leadership on transportation security research, outreach, coordination, and the development and adoption of high-level risk management and emergency management guidance. Materials to be developed will include an illustrated, descriptive article and a supporting set of PowerPoint slides. The materials should be designed to engage the attention and support of all 52 AASHTO member departments. These materials shall be suitable for posting on the AASHTO website after panel review and contractor revision.
