Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Launching U.S. Transportation Enterprise Risk Management Programs

This research project has two objectives: (1) Conduct a workshop for senior U.S. transportation agency leaders to help them launch in agency Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs that will be generally effective and specifically consistent with the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) requirements; (2) Develop a "roadmap" to make available to departments of transportation (DOTs) the training, tools, and guidance materials agencies can use to develop and maintain effective ERM programs, tailored to the agency's resources and capabilities and responsive as specific MAP-21 requirements become known. The roadmap will assist the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the Transportation Research Board (TRB) to provide ongoing assistance to states to implement and improve their ERM programs. The research will entail (1) workshop planning; (2) workshop execution, including providing logistics support and facilitating workshop discussions; (3) workshop documentation; (4) roadmap development; (5) a webinar to present the draft roadmap for discussion; and (6) preparation of a final roadmap report.
