Appendix A. Baseline Measures for UTCM


B. Research Performance

Research Performance Goal:

An ongoing program of basic and applied research, the products of which are judged by peers or other experts in the field to advance the body of knowledge in transportation.

B.1. Baseline Measures

See Appendix A for Research Performance Baseline Measures

B.2. Research Performance Program Outcome

By the conclusion of the current grant period, UTCM research activities will have produced deliverables which have withstood the more formal test of peer review and acceptance. UTCM-sponsored work will appear in all major transportation venues, such as Transportation Research Board conferences and refereed journals, and be held in high regard in the UTC community, USDOT, and the transportation community at large. Finally, our research faculty members will be in leadership positions in the leading transportation professional organizations, both nationally and internationally.

B.3. Planned Activities

During the grant period, UTCM will pursue the following four objectives:

A peer review and monitor process will be established for all phases of research activities including the evaluation of research ideas, project selection, conduct of the research work plan, and the reporting of research results.  This process applies the following specifics to every research project:     

B.4. Performance Indicators

One of the anticipated synergies of the UTCM and SWUTC is the benefit of SWUTC’s experience in collecting and documenting the information needed for performance indicators. This relationship will be utilized to the fullest in meeting the report requirements for UTCM’s grant.
