Audit: Va. should track transp. recs.
An independent review of the Virginia Transportation Research Council has found that more needs to be done to determine if its findings are being implemented.
According to its Web site, the council is "responsible for all research at the Virginia Department of Transportation."
The review was one of four looking into Virginia's transportation programs that Gov. Robert F. McDonnell requested in April. McDonnell announced the findings of the audit on Tuesday.
Currently, the council does not track whether its suggestions are implemented. The audit suggested a formal tracking process.
It also suggested changing the name to the Virginia Transportation Innovation Center to reflect a focus beyond just roads and bridges.
The council works with the University of Virginia and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute to research, test and implement transportation improvements.
