  • Abstract:
    Under 23 Code of Federal Regulations 420.209 (a)(7), as a condition for approval of FHWA planning and research funds for research activities, a State is required to conduct peer exchanges on a periodic basis. FHWA's Office of RD&T has administratively determined this to be every 5 years. The objective of the peer exchange program is to give State transportation agencies a means to improve the quality and effectiveness of their research management processes. A peer exchange is a practical and effective tool to foster excellence in research, development, and technology transfer (RD&T2) program management by providing an opportunity for panelists to share best practices and management innovations with each other. The basic approach is to invite an outside panel of managers to meet with the host agency to discuss and review its RD&T2 management process or a specific focus area. Information on the host agency’s policies and procedures is shared with panel members prior to the meeting. During the peer exchange, panel members may meet with managers, staff, stakeholders, and customers to gain further insight into the host agency's program. The information gathered from the exchange is documented in a written report and presented to agency management.
