KIPDA has developed a Performance Management Plan (PMP) to utilize the framework established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) by incorporating the National Performance Measures and Planning Factors as defined by MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act and continued with the FAST Act, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act. MAP-21 provided a strong emphasis on performance-based transportation planning and required states and MPOs to incorporate performance measures, objectives, and targets into their planning and programming processes. The FAST Act, implemented in 2015 and which replaced MAP-21, sustained these requirements.

Per MAP-21, KIPDA must transition to a performance-driven, outcome-based program that focuses on national transportation goals, increases accountability and transparency of the Federal-Aid Highway Program, and improves project decision-making. This Performance Management Plan (PMP) outlines all of the federally-required measures, both FHWA-required and FTA-required. KIPDA has also developed additional performance measures outlined in this plan and referred to as “MPO-developed performance measures.” These were developed to support KIPDA’s long-range, regional goals as identified in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP).

The PMP was first implemented in August 2015 and was last updated and approved by KIPDA’s Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) on February 28, 2019.
