Requests for Proposals or Information
Below is a list of requests for proposals and requests for information (RFPs and RFIs) that have been issued by TRB’s Cooperative Research Programs, which include the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP), the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP), the National Cooperative Freight Research Program (NCFRP), and the Hazardous Materials Cooperative Research Program (HMCRP). This site also includes RFPs and RFIs issued by the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) and the Commercial Truck and Bus Safety Synthesis Program (CTBSSP). Proposals and responses should evidence strong capabilities gained through extensive successful experience in relevant problem areas. Any agency interested in submitting a proposal or response should first make a frank, thorough self-appraisal to determine whether or not it possesses the capability and experience necessary to ensure successful completion of the project.
Request for proposals and information are published periodically throughout the year by TRB’s various programs. You should check this site frequently to identify new projects that have entered the request-for-proposal phase. In addition, notices are included at appropriate times of the year in TRB’s Transportation Research E-Newsletter. You are encouraged to subscribe to the E-Newsletter
. Finally, e-mail notices on RFPs and RFIs are sent out to subscribers of appropriate CRP listservs. Information on becoming a member of one of TRB’s CRP listservs is available on CRP’s Information for Proposers
