Strategic Highway Safety Plan Evaluation Process Model


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), together with other safety partners, provided SHSP development guidance in A Champion’s Guidebook to Saving Lives (Champion’s Guidebook) and implementation guidance in the SHSP Implementation Process Model (IPM). The next logical step after development and implementation is to evaluate SHSP process and performance to determine if limited safety resources are deployed efficiently and effectively.

The information in the Evaluation Performance Model (EPM) builds upon and is supported by current evaluation methodology, model practices, and processes identified through in-depth interviews in six States, technical review and comment by FHWA safety experts, the knowledge and experience of the EPM development team, and lessons learned from a multi-State pilot test.
