HEPP-20 will provide Guidance/Case Studies for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle technology in key planning products. Autonomous Vehicles have the potential to benefit by reducing crashes, improving first and last mile connections for transit users, and reducing the high cost of owning a private vehicle. AVs also have the potential to significantly increase traffic congestion, vehicle miles travelled, and climate pollution. Many planning agencies are starting to consider Connected and Autonomous Vehicle technology in their Long-Range Transportation Plan, Transportation Improvement Program, Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Freight Plan and Unified Planning Work Program etc. Perhaps, FHWA had funded research to guide planners to incorporate Connected and Autonomous Vehicle technology into their planning process. At this point, HEPP-20 is proposing a research to gather key planning products that have incorporated Connected and Autonomous Vehicle technology to see if there are any challenges, best practices and lessons learned from case studies.

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 as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
