Planning / Performance
Performance measures are indicators of progress toward attaining a goal, objective or target (a desired level of future performance).
Because Florida’s transportation system improvement needs exceed available funding, resources are invested in the most strategic, effective and efficient ways possible. Performance measures provide useful “feedback” and are integrated into FDOT’s business practices on three levels:
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) was enacted in 2012 with the objectives to increase the transparency and accountability related to state’s investment of federal taxpayer dollars into transportation infrastructure and services nationwide and to ensure that states distribute funds to transportation projects that collectively make progress toward the achievement of national goals.
The national goal areas identified were:
In 2015, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act supported and continued the goals and overall performance management approach of MAP-21. To implement the law and assess state’s progress, performance measures were established through rule-making by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) that address each of the national goal areas. The rules require State DOTs and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to conduct performance-based planning by setting data-driven performance targets for the performance measures and program transportation investments that are expected to achieve those targets. FDOT worked in collaboration with the MPOs and providers of public transportation, to the extent practicable, to establish Florida’s statewide targets.
Asset Management Plan and Statewide Evaluations
Asset Management is a strategic process for managing physical assets in a state of good repair over their lifecycle at minimum practicable cost. The Asset Management Plan regulation requires State DOTs to develop a Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP) for the National Highway System (NHS) to improve or preserve the condition of the NHS.
The FDOT Initial TAMP describes the Department’s asset management objectives, measures and processes to improve or preserve the condition and performance of the NHS pavement and bridge assets. The document was submitted and received FHWA certification on November 1, 2018.
Title 23 code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 667 requires State DOTs to identify and conduct periodic statewide evaluations to determine if there are reasonable alternatives to NHS roads, highways and bridges that have required repair and reconstruction activities on two or more occasions due to emergency events. The Department completed the evaluations, which covered the period January 1, 1997 through December 31, 2017 on November 23, 2018.
Each Florida state agency is required by Florida Statutes 216.013 to develop a Long Range Program Plan (LRPP) on an annual basis. This plan provides the framework and context for preparing the annual legislative budget request and includes performance indicators for evaluating the impact of programs and agency performance. Plans are maintained on the Florida Fiscal Portal, where the LRPP for Fiscal Years 2019-2020 through 2023-2024 can be found.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Florida Transportation Commission and others have reported on the performance of Florida's transportation system and the performance of FDOT for many years in various reports. This page provides brief descriptions of these performance reporting activities and links to further information.
