    • Abstract:
      The 2016 VTrans Research Peer Exchange was held on February 10th and 11th, 2016 in Montpelier, VT. The panelists

      included representatives from the Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, and South

      Dakota DOTs, as well as from FHWA Vermont Division and the University of Vermont (UVM) Transportation Research

      Center (TRC). The Peer Exchange intended to inform the development of a Research Program Review and Strategic Plan

      for VTrans as it undergoes a significant turnover in staff. Specific objectives included:

      - Address Staffing and Resource Deployment: The Research Program will have a small staff for the foreseeable

      future. It must therefore explore ways to leverage that small staff using partnerships (e.g., with universities, other State

      agencies, other States), champions, and contributions from across VTrans;

      - Place the Program in Context: The Research Program conducts several types of research, including short-term

      “quick response” projects for in-house staff and longer-term research conducted in-house and through UVM, the New

      England Transportation Consortium (NETC), National Cooperate Highway Research Program (NCHRP), Strategic

      Highway Research Program (SHRP 2), Transportation Research Board (TRB), and pooled fund studies with other


      - Describe the Program’s Relationship with Partners: The Research Program’s largest partner is UVM, which

      currently administrates approximately 40 percent of VTrans’ FHWA SP&R allotment;

      - Focus on Customers and Customer Service: The Research Program has primarily internal customers, but also

      serves other Vermont state agencies, UVM, and FHWA, among others. Identifying and communicating effectively with

      customers is critical for effective implementation.
