The Agency Capability Framework provides a big picture view of the workforce, information, and technology trends and challenges DOTs face in developing and maintaining crucial capabilities. This online platform provides practitioners with easy access to the tools and work products developed through NCHRP Project 20-24(95): Ensuring Essential Capability for the Future Transportation Agency, and the ability to add to and strengthen this resource base over time.

The ACB framework consists of three components:
  • Change Forces are external factors and trends affecting DOTs.
  • Needs are organizational capabilities necessary to respond to the change forces.
  • Strategies are ways that DOTs can respond to the needs and strengthen the required organizational capabilities.
