The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provide independent, objective advice to inform policy with evidence, spark progress and innovation, and confront challenging issues for the benefit of society. The work of the private, nonprofit National Academies is grounded in the expertise of our three academies — National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and National Academy of Medicine.  For more information about the Academies, please visit our website at:  www.nationalacademies.org.


The Academies consists of seven program units, one of which is the Transportation Research Board (TRB).  Established in 1920, TRB annually engages more than 7,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest by participating on TRB committees, panels, and task forces. One program unit within TRB is the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP), which provides products developed from applied research for the U.S. airport industry.  Recognizing the dynamic nature of the industry, a key goal of ACRP is to ensure our products continue to be relevant by updating them as needed.  As ACRP matures and our library of products grows, the need for a systematic means of identifying the products with the greatest need for updating is apparent. 


ACRP research is generally categorized into 10 research fields.  A methodology (https://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/acrp/docs/Product_Update_Review_Methodology.pdf) for reviewing the products in each field was developed in 2020 while reviewing the products in Research Field 2: Environment. 




The objective of this RFP is to review and recommend for updating an initial set of products within Research Field 3: Policy and Planning.  The recommendation should follow the process outlined in the methodology.
