    • Abstract:
      Peer exchanges for state department of transportation (DOT) research programs originated with the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). That federal legislation required the states to conduct periodic peer exchanges to foster excellence in research program management. State DOTs have found the peer exchange to be an excellent forum for the open exchange of ideas, knowledge, and brainstorming. Many states have now conducted two or three peer exchanges, and the value and benefits of the program have been significant. The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) is not required to conduct a peer exchange, but NCHRP management recognize the peer exchange format as an excellent tool to explore new ways of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the program. The first NCHRP peer exchange, held in March 2002, was a general review of the full research program. This report documents the results of NCHRP’s second peer exchange, held September 23-25, 2008 (refer to Appendix A for details of the agenda). The 2008 event focused on four specific themes: 1. Doing the Right Research 2. Dissemination and Implementation 3. Keeping on Track 4. Workforce Development In preparation for the peer exchange, team members (refer to Appendix B for contact information for the participants) were sent a discussion paper on each of the four theme areas for review. (These discussion papers constitute Appendix C). The report includes general observations of the peer exchange team, as well as specific items for consideration by the NCHRP.
