  PBPP Overview

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) required State DOTs and MPOs to conduct Performance-Based Planning and Programming (PBPP) by tracking performance measures,
setting data-driven targets for each measure, and selecting projects to help meet those targets. These PBPP requirements were continued and strengthened in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation
(FAST) Act. PBPP ensures the most efficient investment of federal transportation funds by increasing accountability and transparency and providing for better investment decisions that focus on key outcomes related to seven national goals. The overall goal is to:

– Measure progress toward the goals and objectives of the Long Range Transportation Plan
– Support investment decision making and establish future target performance goals
– Communicate with regional stakeholders and the public.

Progress towards achieving these targets and goals can be viewed by visiting the following links located throughout the WILMAPCO website:
