Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Measuring Performance among State DOTs: Sharing Good Practices -- Construction Project Cost and Schedule

The objective of this study was to conduct a comparison of state departments of transportation (DOTs) regarding construction project cost and schedule performance. Anonymous comparison of 9 states' experience enabled identification of 28 best practices of high-performing organizations with respect to a selected set of key performance indicators. The indicators selected represent a model for performance monitoring within a DOT.

  • Supplemental Notes:
    • The initial NCHRP 20-24(37)A project was completed in 2007. The research agency's final report of that 1st phase is available at AASHTO’s leadership believe that periodic updates and extensions of that study will help DOTs both to assess the effectiveness of their efforts to control project delivery time and cost variances and to participate more effectively in discussions related to evolving national transportation program management policy. A second analysis was completed in 2011. The final report of that work is available for download at
