This report will be of interest to state departments of transportation (DOTs), as well as to other transportation professionals and the public who seek to leverage their work forces by outsourcing key activities. The report examines the current practices in outsourcing, what decisions are involved in deciding when to outsource, procuring and administering outsourced services, what are the most commonly outsourced activities, and determining the effectiveness of outsourcing. This report is an update of NCHRP Synthesis 246: Outsourcing of State Highway Facilities and Services, which provided a comprehensive look at the status of outsourcing as it existed in 1997, and the data compiled for this synthesis are compared with the data of the earlier synthesis, where appropriate. The information for this effort was derived in part from a survey questionnaire distributed to all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Replies to the survey came from 38 states and the District of Columbia. Information was also derived from a review of the relevant literature, which focused primarily on the engineering and design elements outsourced by state DOTs.
