Implementation of Electronic Data, Record-Keeping Systems Versus Paper Records

This research will analyze the electronic data/record-keeping systems of up to nine (9) state/local highway agencies. The primary stakeholders will be state departments of transportations (SDOTs); however, possibly one or two local public agencies may be included. The research will identify measurable objectives, including: (1) Cost to develop, implement and maintain electronic data/record-keeping systems verses the labor and maintenance cost of "paper" systems; (2) Effectiveness of the two systems, e.g., data/records accuracy, security and retrieval times; and (3) Return on investment and barriers to the implementation of electronic information systems.
