Introduction

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA), Office of Safety and Security (TPM-30) provides an integrated set of oversight and technical assistance programs designed to prevent public transportation fatalities, injuries, property damage and system interruption, and to ensure the capability to respond effectively to those accidents, security incidents, and emergencies that do occur.

TPM-30 Mission: Provide leadership and vision in the development and management of programs and initiatives to improve continually the safety of passengers, employees, emergency responders, and all others who come into contact with the public transportation system.

TPM-30 is accountable for the quality of its services and the usefulness of its products to industry. Whether overseeing implementation of safety regulations, providing training, developing guidelines and best practices manuals, partnering with other Federal agencies and industry associations, or creating programs to encourage voluntary improvements in safety and emergency preparedness, TPM-30 activities must be driven by clear goals and must be assessed on a recurring basis to determine their effectiveness.

In FY 2007, TPM-30 established a new program for tracking its activities and performance. This report has been prepared to highlight the accomplishments of TPM-30 during FY 2007.

Background

In carrying out its programs and activities for FY 2007, TPM-30 was committed to addressing the safety, security, and emergency preparedness goals specified in the U.S. DOT Five-Year Strategic Plan, FY 2006 to 2011 and in FTA’s FY 2007 Annual Performance Plan. These goals includes the following:

FTA FY 2007 Annual Performance Plan

U.S. DOT Five-Year Strategic Plan, FY 2006 to FY 2011

Specific activities to be performed to address U.S. DOT and FTA safety and security goals for FY 2007 were documented in FTA’s Annual Performance Plan (APP) FY 2007.

To implement the activities required to meet APP Goal #1 and APP Goal #10, TPM-30 developed its FY 2007 Master Plan. This plan detailed TPM-30’s FY 2007 work program, highlighting both those activities necessary to address FTA’s APP goals and other activities that TPM-30 would perform to ensure continuous improvement in the public transportation industry’s safety, security and emergency preparedness programs.

Throughout FY 2007, TPM-30 used its master planning process to track the performance of its programs and to ensure that all required activities were performed. Not only did TPM-30 achieve all activities required to meet APP Goal #1 - Safety Oversight Program Management and APP Goal #10 – Emergency Response Readiness, but TPM-30 also carried out a number of other important initiatives to respond to emerging safety, security and emergency preparedness issues and to enhance core competencies in the public transportation industry.

TPM-30 Programs

In FY 2007, TPM-30 managed 13 distinct programs to deliver its services:

Collectively, these programs made significant strides in FY 2007 to enhance the public transportation industry’s safety culture, to improve core competencies in security and emergency preparedness, and to advance FTA’s institutional and regulatory framework through strengthened partnerships with other Federal agencies and industry associations.

FY 2007 Accomplishments

For each TPM-30 program, the tables below identify the activities that were proposed to be conducted in FY 2007, the actual activity that was performed, and its status by the end of FY 2007. Status is defined according to the following color-coded system:

 

In addition, if the activity was tracked as part of the FTA FY 2007 Annual Performance Plan, a check mark is included in the last column.

Appendix A provides the tracking matrices submitted for Goal #1 and Goal #10 of the FTA 2007 Performance Plan.

(Note: For the purpose of this HTML version, the color coding and check marks in all tables have been replaced with the descriptive text.)
