COORDINATION, COSTS, AND CONTRACTING FOR TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

Studies of contractural and cooperative agreements among U.S. social-service agencies that provide transportation services have shown that one of the most serious barriers to coordination among agencies is lack of knowledge about transportation costs. In this paper, categories of transportation costs and services developed by the Institute of Public Administration as cost-accounting guidelines for transportation projects are identified and defined. The issue of allocation of data collection responsibilities among the personnel of transportation projects is discussed. Cost accounting and reporting systems developed under Section 15 of the Urban Mass Transportation Act of 1964 (as amended) are related to the Institute of Public Administration guidelines to provide a basis for cost-sharing agreements among transportation agencies. /Author/
