Project Performance Assessment

Overview

Project Performance Assessment
2020 updated tool reflecting beta period comments

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 an updated 2020 version of  tool, which followed a beta session for users to test the new functionality. Staff appreciates all the constructive feedback and input received during the beta period and has incorporated these comments into the final 2020 tool and documentation.

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.
