The process of developing the annual research program involves the collection of research ideas from ODOT employees and solutions from various entities including university researchers, consultants, local governmental agencies and private industry. To encourage a robust research program, ODOT has three avenues through which project ideas can be developed:
- Annual Request for Proposal (RFP) Projects
- Researcher-On-Call (ROC)
- Ohio’s Research Initiative for Locals (ORIL)
Currently, there are no open requests for proposals.
