PM&Q Quality and Timeliness Survey 2020
The results of research projects are public assets, and since the federal government
may fund a portion of the research, closer scrutiny is given to the end product. Two of
the main measures for determining if a project meets research and development
performance measures are timeliness of the research project and quality in which the
project is performed. The Program Management and Quality Task Force (PM&Q) is
asking research programs in the Departments of Transportation to respond to the below
questions so that we can determine if these performance measures are being met and
how, and if not, what is the rationale why these measures are not met or are being
deviated from. The information received will be used to prepare a report which we hope
will assist research programs improve or validate their research program performance.
This survey is an update to one previously conducted in the Spring of 2019.
