Abstract Research and development are key to safe and efficient transportation systems in our country. They have played a vital role in the advancements that have led to our current transportation system. Federal regulation (23 CRF 420 Subpart B) establishes the Peer Exchange process of Research, Development, and Technology Transfer Management for each state department of transportation. State Planning and Research funds are contingent upon the completion of a Peer Exchange. Peer Exchanges allow each state an opportunity to share the operation of its research program with peers from other states. The Peer Exchange teams are typically composed of state research managers, FHWA representatives and university personnel. From this positive exchange, all parties receive the benefit of best management practices and positive ideas that can be incorporated into their respective research programs.
