SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Compendium of State Performance Management Practices and Methodologies for Setting a National Safety Performance Target. Type of request: New information collection requirement. Background: This information collection effort is part of a larger project to document the methodologies currently used by the States to develop highway safety performance measures and targets. The research project includes a literature review of current guidance and practices, a technical report on performance management and target setting in comparable nonhighway safety environments, a peer exchange to explore methodologies and establish promising practices and finally, alternative methodologies for setting a national highway safety performance target. This information collection will specifically support a compendium and evaluation of how baseline information is used in individual States, the District of Columbia, Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), local and tribal agencies to select, set and evaluate performance based highway safety measures and how they affect the overall State’s highway safety programs. FHWA proposes to conduct a Webbased survey to evaluate the methodologies used by State Departments of Transportation, State Governor’s Highway Safety Offices, select Metropolitan Planning Organizations and local departments of transportation to identify methodologies for selecting highway safety performance measures and methodologies for setting performance targets based on those measures. Sample size will be approximately 150 to 160 persons, representing each of the State Departments of Transportation; each of the Governor’s Highway Safety Offices, the District of Columbia, and select MPOs and local departments of transportation. Interview length will be approximately 30 minutes. The surveys will be conducted by emailing a URL link to the appropriate representative within each organization. A standardized questionnaire will be E:\FR\FM\04JAN1.SGM 04JAN1
