SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Biennial Performance Reporting for the TPM Program.
    Background: The MAP-21 (Pub. L. 112-141) and FAST Act (Pub. L. 114-
94) transformed the Federal-aid highway program by establishing new 
requirements for transportation performance management (TPM) to ensure 
the most efficient investment of Federal transportation funds. Prior to 
MAP-21, there were no explicit requirements for State DOTs to 
demonstrate how their transportation program supported national 
performance outcomes. State DOTs were not required to measure condition 
or performance, establish targets, assess progress toward targets, or 
report on condition or performance in a nationally consistent manner 
that FHWA could use to assess the entire system. It has been difficult 
for FHWA to examine the effectiveness of the Federal-aid highway 
program as a means to address surface transportation performance at a 
national level without States reporting on the above factors. The new 
TPM requirements, as established by MAP-21 and FAST Act, change this 
paradigm and require states to measure condition or performance, 
establish targets, assess progress towards targets and report on 
condition or performance.
    State DOTs now must submit biennial performance reports (23 U.S.C. 
150 (e) and 23 CFR 490.107). The information being requested in the TPM 
Biennial Reports will be provided to the DOT in an electronic format 
through an online data form called the Performance Management Form 
(PMF). Alternative formats will be made available where necessary. As 
part of the rulemaking \1\ implementing the MAP-21 and FAST Act 
requirements, FHWA evaluated all of the Biennial Reporting requirements 
in the individual regulatory impact assessments (RIA) and determined 
the following:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 2nd National Performance Management Measures Rule (PM2): 
Assessing Pavement Condition for National Highway Performance 
Program and Bridge Condition for National Highway Performance 
Program; Assessing Performance of National Highway System, etc. 
(RIN: 2125-AF53) https://www.regulations.gov/contentStreamer?documentId=FHWA-2013-0053-0222&contentType=pdf.
    3rd National Performance Management Measures Rule (PM3): 
Assessing Performance of National Highway System, Freight Movement 
on Interstate System, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality 
Improvement Program (RIN 2125-AF54) https://www.regulations.gov/contentStreamer?documentId=FHWA-2013-0054-8287&contentType=pdf.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Respondents: 52 State DOTs, including Washington DC and Puerto 
Rico.
    Frequency: Biennially.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 2,128 hours 
annually for an individual State DOT to compile, organize, and submit 
the report to FHWA.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Approximately 110,656 hours 
annually.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspect of 
this information collection, including: (1) Ways for the FHWA to 
enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the collected
