  • Abstract:
    The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is the Federal steward of the Nation's transportation system. U.S. DOT consists of multiple modal operating administrations (OAs) that carry out mission-related research, development, and technology (RD&T) programs in support of their goals. U.S. DOT's Technology Transfer (T2) Program, which is housed in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology (OST-R), is responsible for coordinating, documenting, and supporting T2 activities across the Department. This report summarizes the implementation of technology transfer authorities established by the Technology Transfer Commercialization Act of 2000 (Pub. L. 106-404) and other legislation. On October 28, 2011, following a series of reports identifying the status of technology transfer from Federal funds and Federal laboratories, the White House issued the Presidential Memorandum - "Accelerating Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Federal Research in Support of High-Growth Businesses." Thus, U.S. DOT continues to increase coordination and collaboration efforts among its OAs and Federal laboratories, as evidenced through the collection and submission of this T2 Annual Performance Report to U.S. DOT’s budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. This report is also provided to the Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology in support of the Commerce Secretary's Annual Summary Report to the President, the Congress, and to the U.S. Trade Representative on the status of technology transfer by Federal laboratories. U.S. DOT defines T2 as the process of transferring and disseminating transportation-related scientific information to stakeholders who may apply it for public or private use. U.S. DOT's current approach to T2 is diverse and unique to each mode of transportation. Each modal OA conducts mission-specific deployment activities tailored to its mode and type of research. DOT’s annual T2 report is available online.
