NEW DIRECTIONS FOR TRANSPORTATION ADMINISTRATION RESEARCH. A REPORT ON NCHRP 20-24

NCHRP Panel 20-24 was formed in late 1986 to explore the feasibility of a "top down" research program to help meet the management, administrative, and financial problems faced by chief administrative officers (CAOs). This effort was divided into two phases: an exploratory review and a more detailed research plan. The research was conducted by the team of Apogee Research and John Clements. Their approach in the first stage of the NCHRP 20-24 project was to conduct interviews with some 30-35 experts including 13 current CAOs. This paper reports the results of those interviews, which led to the identification of seven major research areas. The second phase of work concentrated on three of these areas: resource development, decision support, and financial management. Within these three broad problem areas, seventeen separate research topics were identified. These topics, in turn, were broken into separate projects, for a total of some ninety projects. This paper gives a brief summary of these topics.
