Administration of Highway and Transportation Agencies. Performance Management Implementation Concerns, Issues and Challenges

The objectives of this project were to (a) document (beyond anecdotal discussions alone) concerns, issues and challenges state departments of transportation (DOTs) and other government agencies have encountered in implementing federal transportation performance management (TPM) regulations; and (b) provide a framework for more systematic assessment of the costs associated with implementation. The research builds on previous research by NCHRP and others to characterize: (1) prioritized list of concerns, issues and challenges encountered, (2) explanation and discussion of each concern, issue, or challenge, (3) specific examples of each concern, issue, or challenge as experienced by DOTs, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), or others, (4) realistic proposals of how concerns, issues and challenges may be addressed, ameliorated, or eliminated, for example through staff training, provision of guidance or other technical resources, or revisions to regulations, (5) proposed framework for data collection and analysis that agencies may use to develop estimates of their implementation levels of effort, and (6) possible next steps and action items to be undertaken by various stakeholders to address concerns, issues and challenges.
