Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation. Task 47. MTAP Survey Tool Used to Assess FTA Contractor Performance of State DOT Triennial and Other FTA Reviews--An Update

Based on discussions between the Standing Committee on Public Transit/Multi-State Technical Assistance Program (SCOPT/MTAP) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA), MTAP developed an on-line survey tool which it uses to collect input from State departments of transportation (DOTs )regarding their experiences with FTA Performance reviews. State DOTs are encouraged to complete the survey upon completion of each FTA State Management, Triennial Review or specialty review. Annually the results are compiled and shared with the MTAP Steering Committee and members. Upon their approval, results are subsequently shared with FTA. Consequently, the results are available to be used by FTA to improve the applicable performance review processes. The overall survey process - encouraging completion, pulling down results from the survey, analysis and compilation of the results - is managed by the MTAP staff coordinator and a member of the MTAP Steering Committee. Link to current survey tool: The objective of this task is to update the on-line survey to: improve efficiency by making completing the survey easier; increase the value added nature of the process by making the results more easy to use and of more benefit; incorporate any technology improvements that have become available since the survey tool was developed; and provide for more detailed responses to two or three specific questions of particular interest to MTAP, the SCOPT and the FTA. The survey tool should be structured so that these more detailed responses can be compiled in an organized way (i.e., not just a "comments" field.)
