How s h ould sources of funds be considered? How should fund leakage b e considered? How should fi nancing methods be considered? How s hou ld transit's transportation benefits be considered? These issues of confusion are believed to be common i n practice and are sig n ificant in affec t i ng the results of transit economic i mpac t studies. 2. The principals i nvolved in transit economic i mpact studies have been discussed i n what will be the first section of the report. 3. Case studies have been selected to show both worst and best practices related to each issue. Some of these case stud ies have been described in detail, while others are to be developed. Coordination with FSU has been difficult because of differences i n the timing of progress The guidebook has bee n designed to d ocument both CUTR and FSU work on the same topic. CUTR is responsible f o r Part I covering the principals of impact studies and Part II, covering the issues of confusion and worsVbest practices. FSU is responsible for Part Ill, cover i ng tools for impact s t ud ie s CUTR plans to produce a guidebook covering Parts I and II. -The National Urban Transit Institute21

Action Item 11.2.a: Monftor progress by complying with the contract reporting require ments and taking corrective a ctio ns where progress is not consistent with the work plan. NUTI has completed the required progress reporting activmes. The mechanism for collecting information and the format for reporting progress has evolved during the past several quarters i n response to feedback and experience in p r eparing the progress reports. Changes have included modifying the r eporting format to inclu de both estimated and "actua l spending to reflect the facts that there are significant lags between When expenses occur and when they are officially posted to the account. We have also modified the Operational Report to focus o n goal and objec tive attainment. Objective 11.3: Produce outstanding research res ults that effectively communicate the findings i n a manner appropriate tor the various audiences that might benefit from such i nformation. Action Item 11. 3.a: Develo p guidelines for Institute documents that facilitate quality products (style guidelines). NUTI has developed guidelines for techn ica l documents produced by the National Urban Tra nsit lnsti!Ute. The instruc t ions were i ncluded I n the First Annua l Report. They provide d irection to ensure compliance with RSPA guidance and will provide some degree of commonality of re port formats More detailed specification was avoided to enable each PI to utilize the software and styl e characteristics that they are most famili ar with The technical r eports a lso share the standardized NUTI cover. NUTI has not specified format for other types of products as these are best designed to me et the individual needs of the target audience. Action Item 11.3.b: Establish and implement a procedure for p roduct rev iew to insu re quality products. -The National Urban Transtt Institute 33

In order to explicitly respond to this action item, the project abstracts for NUTI projects address planned technology transfer. In some cases this can be done i n advance as the expectations of the research and the products are well known In other cases ij is not clear at the outset what the findings will be and how they can best be disseminated. In any case the full extent of dissemi nation will not be k now n until well after the conduct of the research. This is particularly true in cases where the findings may be the bas i s for professional publication In multiple forums or where infonnation may be s ubse quently util ized in teaching or future research efforts. Technology transfe r is reported on in the quarterly reports. Action Item 111.1. b: Carry out one or more of the following technology transfer activities as appropriate for the specific research project: Write, publish and pre sent papers at conferences, seminars and workshops; Sponsor faculty conferences, workshops and seminars for outside univers ity faculties; Conduct faculty ex changes and i ntellectual interchange; Provide worl
