Our staff includes economists; statisticians; IT specialists; technical editors; graphic designers; communications specialists; grant program experts; and transportation, health, and environmental policy experts with many years of professional experience in academia, the Federal Government, and the private sector.

Our senior economists, senior statisticians, and policy experts have supported the development and analysis of numerous high-profile Federal Government programs and regulations related to transportation safety, homeland security, aerospace, and consumer protection for the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and other Federal agencies. We have intensively studied and modeled transportation incident and usage data, and we currently maintain the injury, fatality, property, and environmental damage models used by our clients.

Our communications specialists,

Our grant program experts have assisted in the technical and financial oversight of several large DOT grants to U.S. States, territories, and local governments. We have also provided technical assistance to grant applicants and recipients.
