This Peer Exchange will also provide insight and guidance on using the FHWA RealCost LCCA Software as well as topics including performance management, strategies for feeding LCCA with useful data and various breakout sessions focusing on User Cost, Inflation, Discount Rates, etc. This meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about LCCA and will expand your knowledge on the different methods used by peer agencies for conducting a LCCA.
