Before 2019, each of Arizona’s agencies produced STIP / TIP adoption and amendment records with widely varying outputs in terms of appearance and format. These differences made it more challenging and time-consuming for State and Federal stakeholders to get a clear picture of Arizona DOT projects in the STIP and individual amendments, without additional manual effort to reconcile the inconsistencies.
The State of Arizona’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) provides for transportation system preservation and development.
So in 2019, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) implemented EcoInteractive’s ProjectTracker SaaS platform (eSTIP) solution to modernize and streamline ADOT’s STIP with a cloud-based tool.
ADOT’s eSTIP tool implementation included seven modules:
By implementing a holistic STIP / TIP planning solution and bringing the vast majority of agencies in the state onto the platform, ADOT was able to promote consistency in their STIP by creating a standard method for agencies to submit their STIP / TIP adoptions and amendments. Their robust platform allowed for significant savings in time and effort for all stakeholders involved. The real-time project data changes are reflected in the mapping, reporting, and public site, thereby reducing friction in the STIP process and providing a centralized transportation project data resource for the entire state of Arizona.
