MIS: LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

A good major investment study (MIS) requires collaboration, which we sometimes call partnership and sometimes define as "holding a meeting". True partnership calls for some real changes in the way our institutions and levels of government relate. We need to re-engineer these relationships. An example of this is the relationship that St. Louis has with the Missouri Highway and Transportation Department. It is an example of a fundamental change in a collaborative relationship brought about by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) and by some of the difficulties and strains involved in fundamental re-engineering of relationships between institutions. Two organizations that were at each other's throats have come together in an agreement that enables them to effectively carry out the MIS process. Institutional barriers were confronted and overcome.
