Transitioning to a

Performance-Based National

Surface Transportation Program

Findings and Recommendations from March, 2010 Workshop

context for workshop
Context for Workshop
  • Current program has limited accountability for results; no requirement that “problems” be solved or that clear federal interests be advanced.
  • Transition to performance-based program increasingly recognized as best promise for optimizing use of increasingly scarce funds.
  • Limited consensus of “what outcome to measure” and strategy for needed transition provided impetus for workshop focus.

briefing topics
Briefing Topics
  • Core Agreement Areas for a performance based national surface transportation program
  • Agreed Next Steps to begin transition to a performance-based national surface transportation program
  • Challengesand Opportunities moving forward
  • Your role
core agreement there should be federal performance measures
Core Agreement:There Should be Federal Performance Measures
  • Centered around well defined national goals.
  • Need for strong federal support developing and refining metrics for measuring progress toward national goals.
  • Caution is needed to mitigate the unintended consequences of untested measures and to develop data, tools and institutional capacity.
core agreement federal government should play a role in incentivizing performance
Core Agreement:Federal Government Should Play a Role in Incentivizing Performance
  • Careful and deliberate steps can be taken in next authorization bill to begin the process of linking funding to performance.
  • Participants could envision a “bonus program” where additional funds are awarded based on achieving certain objectives related to the performance measures.
agreed next steps to begin transition
Agreed Next Steps to Begin Transition
  • Baseline Development
  • Development and Testing
  • Early Programmatic Applications
  • Possible Broader Applications to New Competitive Programs
baseline development
Baseline Development
  • Inventory current state and MPO experience applying performance measurements
  • Support state and MPO efforts to develop baseline performance data for national interest areas
development and testing
Development and Testing
  • Federal funding for research and development of metrics, data, and tools
  • Federal support and coordination of pilot testing of national outcome performance measures for participating states and MPOs
early programmatic applications
Early Programmatic Applications
  • SAFETY: Strengthened performance bonus within the HSIP for measuring, refining, reporting, and improving safety performance
  • ASSET MANAGEMENT: A new asset management program (possibly including asset performance) with development and refinement of core national metrics for both highway and transit systems
possible broader applications within new competitive programs
Possible Broader Applications within New Competitive Programs
  • Apply national outcome-oriented performance measures to new or continued discretionary programs
  • Could take form of codified TIGER program, new competitive metropolitan program, or renewed Projects of National and Regional Significance (PNRS)
challenging open issues
Challenging Open Issues
  • Definition of the national system
  • Scope of control for grant recipients
  • Time necessary for performance improvements versus funding decisions
timing issues and opportunities
Timing, Issues, and Opportunities
  • Immediate Actions –opportunities to begin immediately during extension period, rather than delaying until next authorization bill
  • Leadership – opportunities for both legislative and executive action
  • Sequencing - Recognizing new authorization as a building block effort that will span years
your role in advancing a performance based program
Your Role in Advancing a Performance-Based Program
  • Critical need for consistent stakeholder advancement and support for needed research, data and capacity development, and pilot efforts.
  • What can YOU be doing as an individual, in your organization, in your TRB committees, and in your professional organizations to advance a performance foundation for the federal transportation program?
