The mission of the FHWA Office of Innovative Program Delivery (OIPD) is to improve transportation performance by driving innovation into action through partnerships, technology deployment and capacity building. OIPD is led by FHWA's first Chief Innovation Officer, Tony Furst. The office comprises four centers, each lead by a center Director.
OIPD works across FHWA to develop or align capacity building, technical support, and guidance to bring forward and accelerate the implementation of innovative designs, materials, construction and environmental techniques and practices, finance and revenue tools, public-private partnerships, and transportation workforce development practices and resources to help FHWA's partners meet the needs of a 21st century transportation system.
The work of the OIPD centers is advancing innovation in the transportation community.
