Francis B. Francois Award is an annual Award for Innovation, presented to one AASHTO member State, enabling that state to fund a $10,000 graduate fellowship at a state university of the winner’s choice. Innovation is defined as something worthwhile that establishes, increases, or enhances value to the public.
Any AASHTO member State is eligible to enter the competition for the Award. Each State is limited to only one award application submittal per award cycle. Entries will be judged on the innovation, sharing, approach, implementation of the innovation, and results.
The 2013 Francis B. Francois Award winner was Idaho Transportation Department for its Winter Performance Measuring through Road Weather Information Sites (RWIS) initiative.
The 2013 winner of the
Performance Excellence Award was Maryland’s SafeZones Program, Maryland State Highway Administration.

ACTION: AASHTO Recommendations on MAP-21 Performance Measure Target Setting
A subgroup of the SCOPM Task Force, headed by Daniela Bremmer, put together the attached findings on performance measure target setting related to MAP-21. Development of this document had a very quick turnaround due to schedule deadlines at U.S. DOT. The findings are available below.

National Level Performance Measures
The SCOPM Task Force Findings on National-Level Performance Measures report was prepared by the SCOPM Task Force on Performance Measure Development, Coordination and Reporting. The task force was established to develop a limited number of national performance measures and help prepare AASHTO members to meet new Federal performance management requirements. The task force, chaired by Paul Degges, Tennessee DOT, includes a range of technical and policy experts representing urban, rural, large and small States. The report is the culmination of an intense and concentrated effort by SCOPM, with the cooperation of many other AASHTO committees, to provide to FHWA recommendations on an appropriate and credible set of performance measures that State DOTs can implement given the requirements in MAP-21. The information in this report was made possible by the more than 10 years of research and development of performance measures.
