Research for the AASHTO SCOH
 Annual
Budget of $1,200,000
 Problems Submitted by SCOH
 Problems must address pressing needs of
the subcommittee
 Problems must cost less than $100,000
 Selection made at the Spring and Fall
AASHTO meetings
SCOR Desires for 2010 NCHRP
Research problem statements should support AASHTO
committee/subcommittee strategic plans
Research problem statements should support the
AASHTO Strategic Plan and Vision
Research problem statements should address
immediate needs and long term vision
Problem statements should be ranked by the appropriate
AASHTO committee/subcommittee
Subgroup problem statements should be ranked by the
parent committee/subcommittee
Staged research submittals (e.g., to develop a new
manual) should include a plan showing future submittals
Committees/subcommittees should identify the top 2 or 3
issues they face
