Managing Limited Transportation Resources in Pennsylvania's Department of Transportation

by James I. Scheiner,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Managing Urban Transportation with Limited Resources


This paper will not describe systems, but rather a management approach which has proved successful in the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The following examples illustrate the objectives used by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation: For a county maintenance manager - complete 80-120% of annual plan for quantities for routine highway maintenance activities (pipe replacement, joint/crack sealing, pothole patching, etc. ). For a district engineer - achieve at least 85% adherence to the six-month advance schedule of bid openings for highway projects. For a vehicles' registration processing manager - maintain registration renewals' turnaround time at under two workdays, with less than a 0. 5% error rate. For a grants' manager - pay all legal commitments within 30 days of invoice receipt.
