Background

SafetyAnalyst is a software product that provides state-of-the-art analytical tools for use in the decision-making process to help highway agencies identify and manage a systemwide program of site-specific improvements to cost effectively enhance highway safety. The analytical tools support the steps of the traditional highway safety improvement process: network screening to identify potential sites for safety improvements, diagnosis of the safety issues at sites, selection of potential countermeasure, economic appraisal of proposed countermeasures, priority ranking of proposed countermeasures, and evaluation of implemented countermeasures. The tools will also support States in their implementation of strategic highway safety plans through capabilities to screen the highway network for promising sites at which to proactively install selected countermeasures. The capabilities are described in more detail at www.safetyanalyst.org.

SafetyAnalyst development has been managed by FHWA and jointly funded by FHWA and 24 States through transportation pooled-fund studies SPR-2(210) and TPF-5(60). Primary development of SafetyAnalyst will be completed by September 30, 2008.

The consensus of participating State representatives during the December 2007 meeting of the SafetyAnalyst Technical Working Group was that the preferred mechanism for long-term distribution, maintenance, technical support, and enhancement of SafetyAnalyst is AASHTOWare, AASHTO's Cooperative Software Development Program. While a majority of participating States reported progress on or plans for preparing their data for SafetyAnalyst, they also reported the need for additional time for data preparations, testing, and evaluation, before SafetyAnalyst development could be considered complete. Therefore, the technical working group recommended that a short-term project be undertaken to provide continuity of SafetyAnalyst support services from October 1, 2008, when the current study ends, through June 30, 2009, after which licensing as an AASHTOWare product would begin. It was further decided that the project should be managed by FHWA as a transportation pooled-fund study.

Objectives

1. Support participating States' efforts to prepare their data and conduct hands-on testing and evaluation of SafetyAnalyst.

2. Complete development of SafetyAnalyst in preparation for its long-term distribution, maintenance, technical support, and enhancement as an AASHTOWare product.

Scope of Work

The study will have 8 tasks:

1. Distribute SafetyAnalyst

2. Maintain the SafetyAnalyst software package

3. Provide technical support

4. Enhance SafetyAnalyst

5. Market SafetyAnalyst

6. Deliver SafetyAnalyst training

7. Develop documentation for licensing of SafetyAnalyst as an AASHTOWare product

8. Perform project management to support the above objectives

Go to document below for a statement of work that provides more details.

Comments

"Commitments Required" assumes 12 participating States and includes cost sharing by the FHWA.

The basic level of participation is $20,000 per State, which would provide the State approximately 1 person-month of software and engineering support for their data preparations, testing and evaluation of SafetyAnalyst, and access to software distribution, maintenance, and enhancement mechanisms and marketing and web-based training services.

Optionally, States may select higher levels of participation: (1) States requiring additional software and engineering support may request additional person-months of support at $20,000 per person-month; (2) States may also request on-site offerings of the "Using SafetyAnalyst" training course at an additional cost of $10,000 per on-site offering.

States may commit fiscal year 2008 or fiscal year 2009 funds. States committing fiscal year 2008 funds must complete their transfer to FHWA by August 15, 2008, so FHWA may obligate those funds to the contract during fiscal year 2008.
