Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department Research Peer Exchange, October 1-4, 2007: Final Report

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department hosted a Peer Exchange of its research program on October 1 – 4, 2007. The regulation instituting peer reviews (now peer exchanges) became effective on August 22, 1994. The authorizing language for these exchanges can be found in the Title 23 Code of Federal Regulations Part 420, Subpart B – Research, Development and Technology Transfer Program Management (Section 420.207 – Conditions for grant approval). The regulations state that, as a condition for grant approval: (b) Each State shall conduct peer reviews of its RD&T program and should participate in the review of other States’ programs on a periodic basis. To assist peer reviewers in completing a quality and performance effectiveness review, the State shall disclose to them information and documentation required to be collected and maintained under this subpart … At least two members of the peer review team shall be selected from the FHWA list of qualified peer reviewers. The peer review team shall provide a written report of its findings to the State. The State shall forward a copy of the report to the FHWA Division Administrator with a written response to the peer review findings. The Peer Exchange is a process wherein a team composed of State and Federal Research managers is invited to discuss and review the host state’s Research program. Information from both the review team and the host agency is exchanged with the intent of improving the Research process in the host state as well as the team members’ states.
