"Advancing Collaborative Planning among Economic Development Districts and State Departments of Transportation" Conduct research on efforts led by State Departments of Transportation (State DOTs) and Regional Economic Development Districts (EDDs) (or similar entities) to promote economic development and growth. This research will identify cases in which multimodal transportation and economic development planning, public and stakeholder outreach, data collection, analysis, or strategy development and implementation are conducted collaboratively by state DOTs and regional EDDs for purposes that advance the state and regional economies. The research will assess how and whether economic development contributes to the transportation planning process (and vice versa) that include implicit and cumulative impacts. The economic impacts of such initiatives are likely to have an effect on the transportation planning process through job creation, efficiencies for businesses engaged in advanced manufacturing, connections to corridors and gateways to enhance exports, enhancement to community livability, and improvement opportunities for tourism.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on FedBizOpps as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
