IMPROVING TRANSPORTATION RESOURCE ALLOCATION PRACTICES OF IOWA REGIONAL PLANNING AFFILIATIONS

Regional Planning Affiliations (RPAs) were established in Iowa in 1992. The purpose of establishing regional organizations was to create forums for the involvement of all interested parties in the development of long-range transportation plans and short-term (three year) transportation improvement programs. The majority of the 18 regional planning affiliations are not currently meeting the objectives of the Iowa Department of Transportation (DOT). An improved method for the allocation of resources is presented. This paper discusses the objectives of the Iowa DOT regarding RPAs, the current practices of RPAs, and a brief discussion of a methodology developed by the author that could be used by RPAs as an improved method of allocating resources.
