TRAINING LEVEL: Basic
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 20 Maximum: 30
The Transportation Performance Management Overview for the MAP-21 and FAST Acts is a one-day course that presents an overview of the Transportation Performance Management (TPM) provisions of MAP-21 and FAST, describes the responsibilities that agencies at several levels - Federal, State, Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) and Transit - have in delivering these requirements, highlights the importance of data in meeting the performance management provisions and captures noteworthy practices in use today that may help agencies get started on meeting these requirements. This course is highly recommended for participants interested in taking the more detailed system specific MAP-21 implementation training.
The aim of this course is to familiarize transportation professionals with the TPM provisions of MAP-21 and FAST and how it can impact existing products and processes. The course introduces key points of overlap between the transit and highway performance measurement provisions in MAP-21, but the primary focus is on the highway provisions. Course material is organized around the TPM elements of goals, measures, targets, plans, accountability and transparency and introduces the related MAP-21/FACT Act provisions for each element. The course provides an introduction on how TPM provisions impact individual performance areas (i.e., safety, pavement/bridge, operations) and how these provisions come together under planning and programming. The course allows participants to interact and to learn from their peers through open discussions and course exercises.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Identify the transportation performance management provisions of MAP-21, how they are tied together, and the associated products and delivery timelines.
List the roles and responsibilities different agencies (Federal, state, and MPO) have in meeting the TPM requirements.
Describe noteworthy practices in use at other agencies that may be helpful to begin the process of implementing MAP-21 transportation performance management requirements.
Explain the importance of having good quality data in meeting the MAP-21 TPM provisions.
Transportation Performance Management Overview for the MAP-21 and FAST Acts is a one-day course primarily intended for state DOT, MPO and FHWA staff who have a role in meeting the MAP-21 TPM requirements. Executives and senior decision makers are a secondary audience.
