Update of Rail to Truck Diversion Model - The USDOT’s Intermodal Transportation and Inventory Cost (ITIC) Model is a PC-based model for performing policy analysis of issues concerning freight movement, such as modal diversion and the assessment of economic benefits associated with changes in transportation strategy or infrastructure. The model was used in the last comprehensive truck size and weight study as well as other policy studies assessing potential modal diversion. With the passage of MAP-21, the surface transportation reauthorization bill, the need to undertake another comprehensive study is at hand with specific language in the bill calling for a new evaluation. The model would be of critical use in determining rail traffic diversion to highway depending on the truck configurations under study. It has been 8 years since the parameters in the model were examined and updated. This study would review the model parameters and complete that update.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on FedBizOpps as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
