Support for Critical Issues in Transportation and Commitment to the Future IHS. State Transportation Agency Multifaceted Decision-Making for Future System Performance

National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 20-126 generally is intended to undertake research to assist state transportation agencies and others to understand and address the issues raised by CIHS and CIT2019 as they relate to an agency. As an early phase of this research, the objectives of NCHRP Project 20-126(02) are to develop and present an analytical framework and guidelines for multifaceted decision-making to support state transportation agencies in fulfilling their missions and ensuring that future system performance supports our nation’s prosperity and well-being. The project will entail delivery of at least the following products: (1) A critical review of Transportation Research Board (TRB) and other literature on research and development activities on the evolution of definitions and measures of performance as the term is applied to management of transportation systems by state transportation agencies and trends that may influence these definitions and measures over the next 10 to 20 years. (2) A framework and tools for characterizing and addressing key issues and principal tradeoffs likely to influence resource allocation management priorities for state transportation agencies seeking to ensure optimum transportation system performance over the next 10 to 20 years. (3) A descriptive cataloging of currently available information sources and practical tools agency decision makers can use or adapt to support system performance monitoring and multifaceted decision-making for transportation system planning and management. In addition, the contractor will be responsible for facilitating a workshop of the NCHRP project panel and other invited participants to review preliminary research results and suggest high-priority topics for additional research on multifaceted strategic decision-making to achieve high system performance.
