Implementing a Transportation Agency Data Self-Assessment

The objectives of this research are to (1) test the feasibility of the data self-assessment process proposed in previous National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) research and (2) produce a guidebook for transportation agencies to implement this process. The guidebook will be aimed at helping decision makers and data practitioners at state departments of transportation (DOTs) evaluate and improve their data quality and management practices to ensure that their data effectively supports decision making about policy choices, infrastructure investments, and other agency functions. The self-assessment process may also be useful to metropolitan planning organizations. (MPOs) The research is being conducted in 3 phases.
