Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Technical Guidance for Deploying National Level Performance Measurements

NCHRP Project 20-24(37) activities are undertaken generally to support development of a commonly accepted set of measures state departments of transportation (DOTs) would use to assess system and agency performance; a single common data standard for each measure; a simple and reliable data submission process; and a basis for identifying, validating, and share best management practices that support high performance. Transportation leaders expect the upcoming six-year federal transportation bill to set a bold new national transportation agenda for America designed to improve performance from the nation's surface transportation system by holding states accountable for progress on topics of national importance like safety and infrastructure preservation AASHTO's Board of Directors has endorsed the use of national performance measures and given to AASHTO's Standing Committee on Performance Management the task of presenting recommendations on measures that that might be used in program management. <span>The objective of this project will be to provide the technical basis for these recommendations and guidance for state DOTs on development and use of the measures.</span>
