Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation. Task 46. Successful Methods to Acquire and Oversee the Outsourcing of Tasks and Projects Related to State DOT Management of Transit Grant Programs

National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Results Digest 314, State Department of Transportation (DOT) Staff Resources for Administering Federal Public Transportation Programs (April 2007), identified issues with inadequate levels of in-house staffing for the management of transit grant programs and suggested an option of outsourcing transit grant management tasks. However, the study did not address the details necessary to successfully acquire and oversee those transit grant management tasks performed by contractors. This research will identify strategies and techniques to successfully procure and supervise contractor performance of transit grant management tasks and projects. This research would also survey for transit grant management tasks currently outsourced by state DOTs as well as identify additional tasks that have the potential for outsourcing with successful outcomes.
