Project Performance Assessment


Transportation Project Performance Assessment

SACOG launched the transportation Project Performance Assessment Working Group to explore tools and methods to analyze transportation investments at the project level. The group will conduct a technical review of two potential new methodologies—benefit cost analysis and performance outcomes analysis—for the SACOG Board’s consideration when developing the 2020 MTP/SCS and future regional funding programs.

The working group is a team of individuals with a wide variety of expertise who will help in a broad-based review of the dual performance assessment methodologies.

The Project Performance Assessment Working Group will meet monthly through the Fall of 2017.


Meeting – February 24, 2017

SACOG staff welcomed working group participants and provided an overview of the meeting goals and outcomes.  The workgroup discussed:

  • MTP/SCS and how performance assessment fits into the larger plan update.     
  • SACOG’s performance assessment work and initial performance evaluation methods at the project level specifically considering the Benefit-Cost Analysis as a potential new methodology.

Due to robust discussion, the Performance Outcomes Analysis agenda item will be discussed at the next meeting.
