Measuring Performance among State DOTs: Sharing Good Practices — Construction Project Cost and Schedule


The objectives of this project are to (a) update the comparative analysis of DOT performance regarding construction project cost and schedule, (b) expand that analysis to incorporate more of the nation’s DOTs, and (c) report on successful techniques employed by leading agencies. While the techniques developed in the initial NCHRP 20-24(37)A may be employed to make this update, this study will give attention also to creating a data specification and data submission process to support on-time and on-budget project delivery measurement across DOTs.

The initial NCHRP 20-24(37)A project was completed in 2007. The research agency's final report of that 1st phase is available here . AASHTO’s leadership believe that periodic updates and extensions of that study will help DOTs both to assess the effectiveness of their efforts to control project delivery time and cost variances and to participate more effectively in discussions related to evolving national transportation program management policy. A second analysis was completed in 2011. The final report of that work is available for download by clicking here .
