PB2 Performance Report for the Transportation System Maintenance Program, Report No. 98-59, February 1999
 
Full report in PDF format


  • The Transportation System Maintenance Program exceeded its performance standard but needs to improve its performance measures.
  • The program needs additional PB² measures to provide greater accountability for its use of resources (unit cost output and outcome measures, as well as customer satisfaction measures). These additional measures would improve accountability as to how well the program is preserving the investment in transportation systems by maintaining roadways at a uniform condition.
  • The program’s accountability system meets OPPAGA’s expectations in three of four areas (program purpose or goals, data reliability, and reporting of information and its use by management). Some modifications are needed in the area of performance measures.
  • We provided a draft copy of our report to the Secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, who did not concur with our recommendations. In some cases we made changes to address the department's concerns. (See Appendix C.)
