Transportation agencies are increasingly focusing on transportation performance management (TPM) to get greater results from their resources. This research will develop a guidebook using lessons learned and good practices to assist with implementing TPM.

Background

• Transportation agencies are increasingly focusing on transportation performance management (TPM) to get greater results from the resources they have
• The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation is requiring state departments of transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to become more performance driven.
• There are many important national and international lessons learned and good practices that have been used that can help agencies improve TPM.
• The Asset Management Guide that was developed via NCHRP and now published as an AASHTO document is a good model for how a guidebook can help DOTs improve practice.

Research Objectives

• Provide state DOTs and other transportation agencies with process, procedures, and “how to’s” for efficient TPM implementation.
• Develop a guidebook using lessons learned and good practices to assist with implementing TPM.
• Compile existing best practices, review resources that have been developed and translate into guidebook components.
