At CDTC we use a computer program we wrote in house. The program runs in a Windows
environment on an original Pentium or greater. It allows the user to enter input for TIP
projects, produces all relevant output required by CDTC and has various utilities.
The output includes project listings and summary tables which go directly into the CDTC
TIP document. We only need to add page numbers, since this varies with the version of the
TIP document. At the click of a mouse, web pages are produced for every project. These
pages are uploaded directly to the Internet and are accessible from the CDTC web site at
. (Choose Publications, TIP, 2001-06 TIP, and Project Listings.) Utilities
include a feature to find text in a project or find projects by specific criteria, such as
fund source. Also, the data can be sent to a file suitable for transmission to DOT for
Weve used this program for several years and find does everything we need it to do.
Ill send you the installation files if you like.

Do any transportation planners at MPOs use a TIP/STIP
management application that they would highly recommend to other MPOs? The South Western
Region Metropolitan Planning Organization has an outstanding contract with a consultant to
develop an application to manage the TIP/STIP for the planning region. The application
should be able to generate various reports designed for public officials and the general
public, keep track of official decisions about projects, store important comments, and
have some document management capabilities. I need to provide detailed application
specifications to the consultants before they begin work. I hope to get some good ideas
from members of this list serve. If you use an excellent TIP/STIP application, please
send me some documentation about the program? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
