Innovation Inter-Agency Contract

This project seeks to foster and highlight innovation across the Texas Department of Transportation

Houston Emergency Evacuation Surveillance for Efficiency

The work efforts for this IAC can be generalized into three general activities: Investigate, Communicate, and Innovate. Investigating includes developing the definition of innovation to be used for the project, a thorough existing source review, and an inventory of the districts and the divisions across TxDOT. Communicating involves developing information to support an innovations outreach mechanism for the TxDOT web presence, creating project implementation modules in PowerPoint, and developing 2-page project innovation summaries. The final activity, innovate, involves engaging with Receiving Agency personnel for problem identification, detailed project scoping, and subsequent problem solving by matching Performing Agency subject matter experts (SME) to Receiving Agency personnel working to implement innovative solutions.
