This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected in 7/10/2019. The project statement will be available on this site. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

NCHRP Project 08-92 “Implementing a Transportation Agency Data Self-Assessment” tested the feasibility of a data self-assessment process for transportation agencies, proposed in previous NCHRP research, and produced a guidebook (NCHRP Report 814 Data to Support Transportation Agency Business Needs: A Self-Assessment Guide) for agencies to implement this process. The guidebook was designed to help decision makers and data practitioners at state departments of transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to evaluate and improve their data quality and management practices, to ensure that their data effectively supports decision making about policy choices, infrastructure investments, and other agency functions.

DOT undertaking to use the information presented in NCHRP Report 814 have found that the data self-assessment process is usable, comprehensive, and appropriately scalable from a group to an entire agency, but implementation could be more effective with training and support suited to the particular idiosyncrasies of an agency’s organization, business practices, and knowledge resources. The objective of this project is to provide such training and support to 8 to 10 DOTs.
