Research Program Design---Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Advancing Performance Management under a National Framework

The objectives of this research are to (a) identify the challenges and opportunities associated with data collection, data management, and analysis methodologies to support preparation of national-level transportation system performance information, and (b) develop a performance- management research roadmap that will inform future research and development activities to be undertaken by the transportation industry. The research team will (1) review and summarize salient characteristics of national data sets relevant to transportation system performance measurement, particularly as defined under federal legislation and regulations, and assess these data sets' suitability of for use by department of transportation (DOTs) and others for monitoring, managing, and reporting on performance; (2) facilitate a workshop to frame the core questions of national-level performance reporting; (3) prepare an interim report summarizing data and information issues to be considered in developing a research roadmap; (4) develop a structure and framework for categorizing potential research needs and criteria for evaluating research priorities and proposed projects; (5) facilitate a workshop of transportation researchers and practitioners to help establish a multi-year performance measures research road map; and (6) present the results in a report with draft research problem statements and proposed funding levels for research areas identified as critical needs.
