Expert Support for Improving Motor Carrier Safety Measurement

Once established and funded on an ongoing basis, an independent committee appointed by the President of the NAS will assist FMCSA in developing and testing an IRT model to measure motor carrier safety. In addition, the standing committee will solicit input from stakeholders and provide advice to FMCSA in the implementation of the other five recommendations. Once established, the standing committee will meet quarterly, and on an ad-hoc basis if needed, to review FMCSA’s progress in implementing its action plan and to provide guidance and advice. This standing committee will a) assist FMCSA in refining its analysis methodologies; b) assist in identifying and utilizing current research in the transportation and related communities; c) review the effectiveness results of the IRT model and provide advice; and d) promote transparency in FMCSA’s analysis and prioritization activities.
