State DOTs utilize a variety of methods, systems, and tools to report on the performance of the federal aid system. Different systems exist such as ARNOLD, FIMS, HPMS, NBI, FARS, etc. Each of these systems its own set of requirements for data reporting. In addition to these requirements, MAP-21 requires states to report performance for six area – bridges, pavements, safety, traffic congestion, on-road mobile source emission, and freight movement.
This research will:
• Review and document all federal reporting requirements that state DOTs do on the condition, performance, and fiscal sustainability of their federal programs
• Assess the effectiveness and opportunities to better integrate across federal reporting requirements to better inform and improve performance management efforts
• Document/ recommend a framework for their leveraging federal reporting requirements for state performance management
