  • Abstract:
    Under 23 United States Code of Federal Regulations 420.209 (a)(7), as a condition for approval of Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) planning and research funds for research activities, each state’s Department of Transportation (DOT) is required to periodically conduct a peer exchange. FHWA defines “periodic” as once every three to five years. The use of peer exchanges was established to provide state DOT research, development, and technology programs with an opportunity to examine and evaluate their known programs with a collaborative team of peers, experts, and colleagues. The process encourages the exchange of visions, ideas, and best practices that could be fostered for the benefit of the host agency and peer team participants. The basic approach is to invite an outside panel of managers from state DOT research divisions, FHWA, other public agencies, and the private sector to meet with the host agency to discuss and review a specific focus area. During the peer exchange, the group analyzes the agency’s policies and practices, shares case studies and experiences, and develops recommendations for improvements. The information gathered from the exchange is presented to agency and FHWA management, and is documented in a written report.
