Collaborative Development of New Strategic Planning Models

The "Collaborative Development of New Strategic Planning Models" pooled fund will make strategic tools affordably available to pooled fund members. The pooled fund will support efficient investment in new and upgraded tools, as public funds are not spent doing something more than once, and innovations can be efficiently built on the basis of existing working tools. The pooled fund will allow participating agencies to have access to: (1) Working models that can assess new challenges such as shared mobility or automated vehicles; (2) Tools to set up and run these models very rapidly for a large number of policy and scenario combinations; (3) Web-based interactive visualization tools to display results; (4) Cost-effective technical support for the implementation, customization and application of these tools to each agency's needs; and (5) Credible, maintained, documented tools adhering to clear standards and development guidelines, with thorough quality control. (6) A community of active users and developers, which will reduce the likelihood that models will become obsolete, fall under the control of a single developer, or be abandoned by their developer while there is still interest in using them.
