Abstract
In the passage of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (Pub. L. No. 114-94), Congress challenged the U.S. DOT and the Federal Coordinating Council on Access and Mobility (CCAM) to develop a cost allocation technology to account for disparate federal reporting requirements and maintain separation of funding sources by trip for non-emergency medical transportation. The U.S. DOT notes the challenges to this seemingly simple task; these challenges include harmonizing different systems that utilize different levels of financial accounting, for example: Human service agency funding typically flows funds by eligible individual, and public transportation funding flows to the local transit system. This fundamental difference has hindered transportation coordination efforts for decades.This project seeks to develop a cost allocation proof of concept model for a software application or other technology solution that can track different Federal funding sources by trip and funding source reporting requirements and account for other issues.
