Current and Future Rail Freight Bottlenecks - With limited public and private dollars available for investment in infrastructure projects and an ever increasing burden on the freight rail transportation system, it is of particular importance for key stakeholders in organizations that grant money and/or loans to transportation projects to understand the most critical bottlenecks on the U.S. freight rail transportation system. The definition of bottleneck is not limited to capacity issues solely on the freight rail system but also congestion that rail creates when it crosses and/or shares routing with other modes of transportation such as passenger rail and roadways. The research will look at current and future freight flow trends, identify current and potential bottlenecks, and quantify the public cost of not improving the identified corridor and the public benefit of improving the corridor.

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).
