14 A Guidebook for Sustainability Performance Measurement for Transportation Agencies Chapter 4 Understanding the Sustainability Performance Measurement Framework The sustainability performance measurement (SPM) framework The fundamental components of the was developed to address the question: What does a sustainability transportation agency need to be equipped with in order to performance successfully address sustainability issues through performance measurement measurement? The SPM framework consists of three types of framework include components, termed as fundamental components, overarching understanding sustainability; components, and auxiliary components. Figure 2 illustrates the developing goals, basic components of the SPM framework. A description of the objectives, and framework components follows. See the research report for a performance more detailed description of the SPM framework. You may measures; also want to use the overview presentation provided (Appendix implementing performance G) as you talk with colleagues, introduce the framework to your measures; refining the agency, and orient your working group. framework; and applying continuous feedback. FUNDAMENTAL COMPONENTS Applying the framework in a step-by-step manner requires these components (described in detail in the next chapter): Step 1 Understanding sustainability, Step 2 Developing transportation sustainability goals, Step 3 Developing objectives, Step 4 Developing performance measures, Step 5 Implementing performance measures, and Step 6 Refining the framework and applying feedback.
