36 5.1 Workshop The researchers held a workshop for stakeholders at the Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering in Irvine, California, on October 25, 2016. The purpose of the workshop was to gain stakeholder input on the draft guide and tool. The agenda for the workshop is shown in Figure 2. To ensure that participants had a baseline understanding of the project, the researchers intro- duced the background and context of the project and described the clean truck strategies. In addition to discussing the specific elements of the guide and tool, the researchers invited a num- ber of speakers to provide additional context and information related to clean truck strategies, including a discussion of significant efforts in Southern California, perspectives from the truck- ing industry, and federal funding opportunities. The workshop participants included NCHRP project panel members, agency interviewees, guide and tool pilot testers, and additional stakeholders. Participants were selected to include representatives from federal, state, and local agencies of varying sizes; port authorities; and other related organizations. The group had a mix of experience in administering similar types of pro- grams. The full participant list is shown in Table 15. With nearly 30 people in attendance, ICF led small-group breakout sessions to provide par- ticipants more opportunities to share their feedback and thoughts about the guide and tool. Breakout groups were arranged to provide a mix of agencies from different regions and different levels of government or authority. The groups discussed each section of the guide. Participants provided feedback covering a range of topics from content to visual information. Comments included key information to include in a summary table; categorizing truck sizes appropriately; providing consistent information in the strategy descriptions; organizing strategies into more meaningful categories; correcting images of strategies; and providing a glossary of terms and acronyms. To review the tool, participants were given an opportunity to run through examples of using the tool to respond to realistic clean truck scenarios at the state DOT, MPO, and port authority levels. These case studies were designed to introduce the various functions of the tool. Participants provided helpful feedback to improve the navigation and understanding of results. As a result of the workshop, several suggestions and comments from the workshop participants were used to improve the guide and tool. C H A P T E R 5 Stakeholder Workshop
