    • Abstract:
      In 2010 the FHWA Office of Operations, Office of Transportation Management (HOTM) commissioned the development of a white paper, Data Capture and Management: Needs and Gaps in the Operation and Coordination of U.S. DOT Data Capture and Management Programs. The white paper examined current data capture and management activities across various U.S. DOT program areas, identified gaps and potential opportunities for filling the gaps to effectively and efficiently coordinate and manage the programs’ activities. The primary recommendation from the white paper was that the HOTM develop a Data Business Plan to address the gaps identified in the paper. The Data Business Plan would serve to improve coordination among real-time data capture programs within U.S. DOT by clearly defining U.S. DOT needs for real-time data, address overlaps and gaps in program needs with respect to stakeholders and ultimately result in cost savings for U.S. DOT.

      In 2011, the FHWA Office of Operations, Office of Transportation Management (HOTM) commissioned the Data Business Plan study. The purpose of the Data Business Plan is to:

      • Address gaps identified in the Data Gaps paper (e.g., improve the coordination and communication mechanism across U.S. DOT offices to avoid investing resources on the same or similar types of data related programs);

      • Serve as prototype for other U.S. DOT offices; and

      • Provide leadership by suggesting or offering best data collection/management practices to primary data collectors.

      Applying the concepts in this Data Business Plan will ensure the stakeholders are in line with FHWA priorities and immediately allow them to benefit from the improvement of coordination of data programs. These benefits include improved availability of data to support planning, operations and performance measures activities; possible reduction in expenditures due to the elimination of duplicate data; more rapid, targeted data acquisitions; broader sharing of data resources; systematic coordination and clarification of data-related federal policy and reduced data collection and management costs. These benefits are particularly relevant as it relates to the connected vehicle initiative. In summary, application of Data Business planning concepts will ensure the ability to better serve the needs of the U.S. DOT and its customers.
