Oregon Modeling Improvement Program
The Oregon Department of Transportation developed the Oregon Modeling Improvement Program, or OMIP, to meet rules and regulations introduced over 20 years ago. The purpose of OMIP is to ensure Oregon continues to have the right tools, skills and expertise needed to answer important questions about our transportation systems, land uses and the economy. Through the Oregon Modeling Steering Committee, or OMSC, OMIP provides opportunities for member agencies to build relationships, share knowledge and leverage resources efficiently, which enables Oregon’s transportation modeling services to mature and grow.
In order to fulfill the purpose of OMIP, the OMSC has adopted three over-arching goals:
- Promote inter-agency communication, collaboration and cooperation;
- Facilitate technical excellence and innovation,
- Cultivate the knowledge and talents of Oregon transportation modeling professionals.
