Design and Implement a System for Archiving and Disseminating Data from SHRP 2 Reliability and Related Studies and Assistance to Contractors to Archive Their Data for Reliability Projects

Many of the SHRP 2 contractors performing research on travel time reliability have provisions in their contracts requiring them to provide the various types of data they collect, produce, and use for inclusion in the archive to be developed under combined project 13A. Reliability project data can take a wide variety of forms including raw alpha-numeric databases, spreadsheets, reports, web pages, data development processes, and analytical tools and software. The intent of this request for proposals is that the word "data" be construed broadly. The main objective for the L13A project is to make all data in all forms gathered in each of the SHRP 2 Reliability focus area research projects available via the Internet to researchers and others for purposes such as independent validation of SHRP 2 research results and for use in extending travel time reliability research. The data archive should also be designed to include data from a handful of projects from other SHRP 2 focus areas that also address travel time reliability. It is expected that the archive will mainly include "non-sensitive" data developed or enhanced by SHRP 2 contractors so that the data contained in it can be accessed and downloaded in an open manner via the Internet; however, some issues involving data confidentiality and data ownership may arise and will need to be resolved. This may necessitate means to administratively lock down selected data for some users.
