This report summarizes the proceedings of the 2019 Transportation Performance Management (TPM) Peer Exchange sponsored by the Transportation Performance Management Pooled Fund, led by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (DOT). The peer exchange was held in St. Paul, Minnesota on November 14-15, 2019 and focused on how transportation agencies are implementing TPM in light of federal requirements and advancing TPM and performance-based planning and programming (PBPP) practice. The purpose of the peer exchange was to provide participants an opportunity to share their experiences implementing TPM and to discuss related best practices, including how to resource and align their internal performance management systems with federal requirements. They also discussed current communication challenges and the future of TPM. The primary goal of this peer exchange was to advance the state of the TPM practice, particularly by sharing lessons learned.
