Investigation of Stakeholder Perspectives of Performance Measurement (PM) Monitoring and Reporting as a Nevada Department of Transportation Business Practice (NDOT 365-16-803)

An increasing number of state transportation agencies have begun utilizing performance management to demonstrate transparency and accountability to the public, to state general assemblies, and to national stakeholders, such as the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). While most of these agencies have a performance management structure within their organization, the staff may not be fully aware of, or may not have fully adopted, this structure. The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has recognized that performance management is more effective when focusing on specific measures regarding decision making and policy alteration. It is crucial to assess the stakeholder perspective of performance measurement monitoring and reporting, and to shape that perspective into agency culture, particularly in to management practices. As a result, the objective of this research is to develop performance measurement within NDOT in a manner that provides clear information regarding the decision-making process, and that establishes a performance-based management culture.
