Aligning Data Systems to Communicate with Decision Makers: A Peer Exchange, April 26–27, 2014, Miami, Florida
The Peer Exchange on Aligning Data Systems to Communicate with Decision Makers was held in Miami, Florida, on April 26–27, 2014, in conjunction with the 10th National Conference on Transportation Asset Management. Organized by the Transportation Research Board, the peer exchange focused on communicating with decision makers on transportation asset management, economic development opportunities, and system performance. Peer exchange participants came from state departments of transportation (DOTs), Federal Highway Administration, universities, consulting firms, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and a transit agency. A total of 14 state transportation agencies were represented at the peer exchange. Participants included four agency chief executive officers; one chief operations officer; and personnel responsible for communications, information technology, data collection and analysis, and research. This summary, which is organized into three sections following the introduction, presents key elements discussed at the peer exchange. The peer exchange format is described next, followed by an overview of the major themes emerging from the presentations and discussions. Examples highlighted by participants are included in this section. The summary concludes with a description of potential follow-up activities, including facilitating ongoing dialogues among affinity groups, developing and using outreach materials targeted toward governors and legislators, and conducting research on specific topics.
