PPA Tool Now Available
SACOG has launched the Project Performance Assessment tool to analyze transportation investments at the project level. The tool stems from a 2017 working group and its technical review of performance assessment methodologies. SACOG will use the Project Performance Assessment (PPA) tool in support of the 2018 agency funding round. Individual programs within the overarching 2018 funding round will use the PPA tool differently.
SACOG will run the Project Performance Assessment tool on all Community Design projects applying in the competitive categories. As the PPA analysis will be input and operated by SACOG staff, applicants will not be responsible or need to run the tool in their applications. SACOG is providing this service for Community Design as it is the first program to use the PPA tool.
For Community Design the tool will report a series of data indicators by Blueprint principle. The Community Design working group will use these data indicators, in tandem with the narrative and analysis provided by the project sponsor in the application itself, to consider the appropriateness of the proposed project in supporting the Blueprint principles, and the reasonableness of the projected performance outcomes. The Community Design Project Performance Assessment documentation describes the various indicators and data outputs used in this review.
