WSDOT is not alone in using performance measurement and strategic planning to promote accountability. Almost every state uses strategic planning in one form or another, and all DOTs use performance measurements at various programmatic levels. To help practitioners make effective comparisons of measures and reporting systems, WSDOT maintains a list of 51 state, commonwealth, and federal district transportation authorities and their online performance measurement and strategic planning mechanisms.
Many states maintain both project and programmatic reporting as WSDOT does, although reporting will vary in scope and style. In addition, the list has been updated to include Recovery Act documentation, to allow for identifying and cross-sharing of best practices among states and practitioners.
