Recommendation #2 To: Transportation, Department of

To improve performance metrics related to the support program, Caltrans should devise, use, and publicize a consistent method for reporting the support-to-capital ratio on its Web site and in other reports to the public. Further, Caltrans should recalculate past support-to-capital ratios using the method devised to allow for comparison across years.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From October 2012

This recommendation was fully implemented in December 2011. However, Caltrans' status updates provided a combined response to 1.2.a and 1.2.b. The recommendation to 1.2.b was not fully implemented by the one-year status update. We provide a separate status for 1.2.b.

In response to recommendation 1.2.a, Caltrans updated the website with re-calculated ratios and a consistent methodology in December 2011. The website was updated in September 2012, with the 2012 results. Please see Attachment 2A-1 which consists of the Annual Overall Program Measure.
