Annual Operating Report (AOR) Study Update

The CTD is conducting a study to improve the accuracy and analyses of performance data reported in the AOR. The final report was presented at the September 15th business meeting and the Commission approved the recommendations to continue the study by testing the collection of disaggregated (detailed) data as part of the AOR. The CTD and Thomas Howell Ferguson hosted a webinar on April 12, where Community Transportations Coordinators (CTCs) were invited to submit their disaggregated AOR data on a test website created for the purpose of this study. The recording and copy of the presentation from the webinar can be found at: CTD Calendar of Past Events.  

CTCs interested in participating on the test website must contact Mike Rosciam from Thomas Howell Ferguson at: mlr@thf-cpa.com. Here is a link to the instructions for participants to submit their AOR data from the State Fiscal Year 2022-23 (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023): Instructions for uploading disaggregated AOR data.
