How does the Oakland County Federal Aid Task Force Funding Committee rate projects?
The Committee uses a very objective point system to evaluate the projects submitted. It reviews each project in two categories, engineering considerations and planning considerations. Within each category, there are individual criteria against which each project is rated on a numeric scale. The highest number of points is given for a project's potential for accident reduction. The result of this system is that all projects submitted, whether they are from the Road Commission or a city or village, compete against each other for the federal funds. Only those that demonstrate that they are truly worthwhile are selected for funding. This system has been deemed so fair and objective that the Federal Highway Administration has recommended it for use nationwide.
