  • Abstract:
    Title 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations (23 CFR) establishes requirements for state

    departments of transportation (DOTs) to conduct periodic reviews of their research,

    development, and technology (RD&T) programs.  One of the tools available to state DOTs in

    reviewing their State Planning and Research (SP&R) programs is the Peer Exchange.  According

    to the “Guide for Peer Exchanges,” published by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA):

    The use of peer exchanges was established to provide State DOT RD&T programs with the

    opportunity to examine and evaluate their own programs through a collaborative team of

    peers, experts, and persons involved in the process, where the exchange of vision, ideas,

    and best practices could be fostered to benefit their program and the program of the

    participants. A peer exchange is a focused collaboration among transportation research

    colleagues through which a host State may find the means to restructure or merely fine

    tune research program processes. With periodic peer exchanges, a State DOT can help

    ensure that its research program remains viable, vibrant, and productive.1

    Federal regulations require each state to conduct a peer exchange at least once every five

    years.  Each peer exchange should have an agenda covering two to three days and a panel

    consisting of four to five people.  The panel should include representatives from other states,

    from FHWA, and from other key stakeholder organizations (such as universities with direct

    involvement in the SP&R program).
