Abstract The objective of the work documented in this report was to examine full-time-equivalent (FTE) staffing needs for TxDOT project development and construction, and analyze needs for backlogging projects, i.e., preparing construction plans in advance and keeping them at the ready for possible construction funding in the future. As TxDOT developed its long-term project development plans (PDP-2012 and PDP-2013), the research team provided support to the respective TxDOT task forces. In fiscal year (FY) 2011, the research team examined FTE needs for TxDOT project development and construction, and began to analyze needs for backlogging projects. In FY 2012 this work was continued to complete analyses requested by TxDOT as a result of additional complexities identified during development of PDP-2012, and to address changes in funding enacted by the 82nd Texas Legislature.
