Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 37-09. Performance-Based Contracting for Maintenance

State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) are confronted with the difficult task of delivering projects on time and budget and within quality specifications. The combination of funding shortfalls and cost overruns has intensified the focus on project delivery management. Due to these pressures, DOTs have developed various mechanisms to track and evaluate the delivery of maintenance projects (e.g., dashboard reports and performance-based contracts). The purpose of this synthesis is to obtain information on successful implementations of performance-based maintenance project management. This effort will not only document how performance measures are applied to the monitoring of project delivery but will also list the measures that were applied in the process. Design-build maintenance warranties will be included.
