Gathering will seek and share information about new legislation
SALEM – The Oregon Department of Transportation is inviting all interested vendors, service providers and states to come to Oregon Nov. 13 for a free, day-long meeting about Oregon’s recently passed road usage charge legislation. ODOT wants to share details as well as gather information that can help it craft the nation’s first road usage charge program. The meeting will be Nov. 13 at the World Trade Center, 121 SW Salmon St. in Portland, Ore. On Nov. 14 – 15, the ODOT team will be available to meet with specific vendors in scheduled one-on-one sessions.
Space is limited, so attendance at the event will be upon approval by ODOT’s Office of Innovative Partnerships, where road usage charge programs have been researched and successfully tested over the past decade. Topics for the 2013 Oregon Summit include:
- Operational objectives and policy implications of the Road Usage Charge Program
- Presentation and review of the proposed system architecture
- Various operational scenarios for the program
- System procurement schedule
- Business processes currently envisaged
Activities include a bipartisan panel discussion with elected state officials who participated in the 2013 Road Usage Charge Pilot program and presentations by James Whitty, manager of the Office of Innovative Partnerships. There will also be networking time for other states to meet potential vendors.
