NATIONAL COOPERATIVE HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROGRAM Systematic, well-designed, and implementable research is the most eective way to solve many problems facing state depart- ments of transportation (DOTs) administrators and engineers. Oen, highway problems are of local or regional interest and can best be studied by state DOTs individually or in cooperation with their state universities and others. However, the accelerating growth of highway transportation results in increasingly complex problems of wide interest to highway authorities. ese prob- lems are best studied through a coordinated program of cooperative research. Recognizing this need, the leadership of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Ocials (AASHTO) in 1962 initiated an objective national highway research program using modern scientic techniques—the National Coopera- tive Highway Research Program (NCHRP). NCHRP is supported on a continuing basis by funds from participating member states of AASHTO and receives the full cooperation and support of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), United States Department of Transportation, under Agreement No. 693JJ31950003.

Best value procurement is becoming more popular with transportation agencies because it allows them to consider factors other than cost. However, best value procurement is also more complex and can lead to protests if not conducted properly.

NCHRP Legal Research Digest 90: Best Value Procurement for Highway Construction: Legal Issues and Strategies, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, addresses the best value procurement systems used for highway projects and notes the flexibility regarding selection criteria, rating systems, and award algorithms.
