FEDERAL MOTOR CARRIER SAFETY ADMINISTRATION RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY 5-YEAR STRATEGIC PLAN, FISCAL YEARS 2005-2009
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Research and Technology 5-Year Strategic Plan: establishes the strategic research and technology priorities that help the agency and department achieve their goals; provides a 5-year perspective and guidance on the research and technology projects FMCSA will pursue and the expected results; helps maintain and improve the overall focus and coherence of research and technology direction; improves the quality and relevance of FMCSA research and technology products; and helps to improve the visibility of agency research and technology program outcomes and their impact. While much of this plan focuses on the Office of Research and Technology, the plan addresses research and technology projects planned and funded throughout the agency. The plan timeframe is fiscal year 2005 through fiscal year 2009 to coincide as closely as possible with the expected surface transportation reauthorization. This Strategic Plan is intended to be a living document and it will adapt to evolving circumstances and priorities. This Strategic Plan is constructed to be wide-ranging and thought-provoking. The specific projects in which the agency will engage are subject to budget availability and resource constraints. By partnering with other organizations, FMCSA intends to share resources and ideas in order to overcome some of those constraints.
