Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. AASHTO Strategic Plan Support

In 2000, a Strategic Planning Task Force appointed by the AASHTO president began its work to develop an AASHTO Strategic Plan for 2001 - 2003. The Plan was approved by the AASHTO Board of Directors in 2001, and the Executive Director immediately assigned responsibilities for the four primary goal areas and the development of strategies to implement the goals and objectives. Today, nearly all of the initiatives have been successfully accomplished. The development of the 2001 -- 2003 Plan involved a considerable amount of background research, including interviews with the vast majority of then-CEOs, interviews with external constituents, and a survey of state DOT employees that resulted in approximately 1,000 responses. In addition, two environmental scan papers were prepared to help set the stage for plan development. A similar approach was used in this project. This project will have a strong emphasis on identifying strategic focus areas for AASHTO leadership and staff for the next six years, e.g., from calendar year 2005 -- 2010. See the AASHTO website for the latest version of the Strategic Plan <>.
