Project Performance Assessment


Project Performance Assessment
Beta period through May 15, 2020

SACOG 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 used the Project Performance Assessment (PPA) tool in support of the 2018 and 2019 agency funding rounds.

SACOG has released a beta version of the 2020 version of the tool and is seeking input through an open review period. The beta period will close on May 15, 2020.

TAM Tool for Transit Agency 2018 SGR Applications

SACOG staff will provide information to transit agency applicants on use of the Transit Asset Management (TAM) tool. This will substitute for the Project Performance Assessment (PPA) for transit vehicle replacement or State of Good Repair project applications that do not have a geography that works with the PPA format. For questions, contact Sharon Sprowls at or (916) 340-6235.


2018 Community Design

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.
