MAPSS Performance Improvement program

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation MAPSS Performance Improvement program focuses on the five core goals and associated performance measures that guide us in achieving our mission "to provide leadership in the development and operation of a safe and efficient transportation system." Establishing goals and measuring results is essential to running a successful and efficient organization and meeting public expectations. The department is committed to quarterly reporting of progress, with updates published in February, May, August and November. The schedule for review and reporting on individual measures is based on pertinent program cycles, the availability of data and the departmentís business need for the information.
