Assessment of Metropolitan Planning Organization and State Department of Transportation Resources and Technical Capabilities Relative to Adopting New Air Quality Modeling Applications

The objective of this requirement is to assess and evaluate the overall analytical capacities and experiences of Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO), Council of Government's (COG) and State Department of Transportation's (DOT) capabilities to adopt and incorporate new air quality modeling applications into regional and hot-spot analysis for conformity purposes. For many smaller MPOs with limited staff resources and expertise and DOTs experiencing significant resource and budget constraints, the adoption of increasingly complex air quality emission modeling tools can present significant challenges.
