This strategic plan is The Research and Special Programs Administration's (RSPA) commitment to the American people to make their lives better. The plan targets safety and environmental dangers through risk-based management and by building incentive programs to promote compliance with our regulations. RSPA also pledges an advanced strategy to ensure that science and technology support the achievement of the nation's transportation goals. With the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center's distinct system-wide perspective, the plan addresses the many national transportation challenges.
