Utility for Risk-Based Screening and Assessment (URSA)

The goal of this project was to develop a risk-based algorithm for screening all applications for a U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) number. In support of FMCSA’s URS-1 development, this project included production of the URSA tool. The tool includes an algorithm and corresponding software for an automatic risk-based assessment that calculates a risk potential based on the likelihood that an applicant for operating authority is a chameleon carrier, is attempting to reincarnate, or is attempting otherwise to receive authority illicitly. This project included the development, testing and validation of the algorithm and software that supplies FMCSA’s URS-1 with an assessment of risk potential.
