Abstract/Description: The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is mature in its development and use of performance measures, however there was not a standard approach for selecting measures nor evaluating if existing ones were used to inform decision-making. This research report inventories ODOTs high-level performance measures, compares them to Federal, State, and Agency goals, identifies a framework to determine the suitability of performance measures and select new ones, and identifies new recommended measures. The outcomes of the project include a framework for evaluating and selecting measures, and recommended Key Performance Measures for the Agency.
