Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Support for Development of AASHTO'S 2013-2018 Strategic Plan

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) developed and adopted a strategic plan for the 2009-2013 timeframe. It was prepared to guide the direction of the services the AASHTO staff provides, to bring about needed change in State departments of transportation (DOT's), to broaden and sharpen the focus of AASHTO, and to prepare for the reauthorization of the surface transportation programs. The plan laid out 4 broad goal areas with 22 specific action items. The broad goals were to (1) re-establish transportation as a national priority, (2) advocate and communicate to achieve AASHTO's goals, (3) provide world-class technical services, and (4) assist State DOTs with leadership and performance. While some elements of the current plan likely remain as priorities for the association, it is timely to review and refresh AASHTO's strategic direction and agenda. AASHTO's leaders feel strongly that the strategic plan should convey clearly the multimodal nature of the nation's transportation system and the responsibilities of the organization's members. In addition, the current status of federal and state policy influencing transportation funding and system development and management make it essential that AASHTO's strategic plan be updated quickly. The objectives of this project are to (a) provide analytical support for development of an updated strategic plan for AASHTO and (b) facilitate the work of AASHTO staff and membership in that development.
