'Performance-based Planning and Programming' is a two-day Instructor-led Training course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.
As recent economic, political, and social trends have placed greater emphasis on public sector accountability and cost-effectiveness, many transportation agencies across the country have begun to shift towards a performance-based approach to plan, manage, and operate their systems. This course will familiarize transportation agencies with the key elements of a performance-based planning and programming (PBPP) framework, the relationship of these elements within existing planning and programming processes, and the connection of these elements to Transportation Performance Management (TPM) requirements initiated by legislation, including the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act and continued under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act and the Statewide and Nonmetropolitan Transportation Planning; Metropolitan Transportation Planning Final Rule, which was published in the Federal Register on May 27, 2016.
This course begins by providing an overview of PBPP and then walks the participants through each element of the US Department of Transportation (USDOT) PBPP framework, providing examples of alternative approaches and real-world applications.
Participants in the course will gain insight on several key learning points, including:
+ How to apply performance management principles within the planning and programming process to achieve desired agency goals and performance outcomes
+ How to connect PBPP with other performance management activities, plans, and products
+ How to assess and learn from transferable planning and programming practices in use across the US, including examples of how agencies are moving towards implementing PBPP
This course includes a written assessment. The course content was last updated in July 2017.
