VTRC Research Needs Statements

Effective March 16, 2018 VTRC instituted a new process for outsourced research projects. For all research projects that we plan to conduct through contracts with universities, we will now be posting a research needs statement (RNS) on the web and inviting expressions of interest (EOI) from any public university in Virginia that wishes to respond. We are hopeful that this process will provide increased opportunities for all of our universities to engage in our research program.

If you would like to be added to the mailing list we use to announce the posting of new RNSs please send your name, university affiliation, and email address to Bill.Kelsh@VDOT.Virginia.gov indicating your interest in participating in our program. 

Be sure to download and review the VTRC University Contract Participants Guidance document for details on eligibility requirements and how to participate in the program. Additionally, there are two forms (referenced and explained in the "Guidance" document) that are required to be made part of each expression of interest: EOI Schedule Template and EOI Budget Template. When a new RNS is posted here, these templates will be emailed to you as attachments along with the announcement.

At this time we have no unmet research needs.
