  • Abstract:
    Regulations contained in 23 CFR Part 420 establish procedures under which the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) may allow states increased flexibility for directing and controlling their program initiatives. These regulations set forth the minimum Federal requirements for carrying out Research activities using FHWA State Planning and Research (SP&R) funds. One of these conditions stipulates that the State Transportation Agency (STA) will conduct a peer exchange of their research management processes on a “periodic basis”. Each state is responsible for selecting and organizing the peer exchange team for its state exchange. Mississippi DOT hosted its initial Research Peer Exchange on June 15-18, 1998 in Jackson, Mississippi. This final report details the results of Mississippi’s second research peer exchange which was performed on September 24-26, 2002 in Jackson, Mississippi. The Peer Exchange concept as used herein denotes a process of convening a team composed of invited research managers from other agencies. The team, together with the host agency discusses and reviews their management processes. Information from the host agency as well as the agencies represented by team members is exchanged with the intent to gaining insights that have the potential to improve the research management process of both the host agency as well as those of the peer exchange team members.
