Transportation 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:

  • At the strategic level- Performance measures help to establish and inform goals, objectives, and strategies as well as to monitor FDOT Mission attainment. Performance measures also communicate progress toward achieving goals in transportation plans and programs such as the Florida Transportation Plan, the Strategic Highway Safety Plan, and the Freight Mobility and Trade Plan.
  • At the decision-making level- Performance measures are used to inform and assess the financial policies for allocating funds among programs such as highway preservation, system expansion, and public transportation. Decision makers also consider various trends impacting transportation system performance.
  • At the project delivery level- After projects are selected, performance measures help to monitor the efficiency and effectiveness of projects and services in the Five Year Work Program and in relation to FDOT’s Transportation Asset Management Plan. The measures also support organizational and operational improvements.

Required Performance Reporting

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.
