The Southern California Association of Governments hosted this peer review on 13-14 June 2019 in Los Angeles. The discussions that took place during the peer review sessions, and supporting technical documentation provided by RAND Corporation and SACOG, provide the basis for this report. The FHWA's Travel Model Improvement Program (TMIP) sponsored this peer review, which provides technical support, and promotes knowledge and information exchange in the transportation planning and modeling community. In this 7-hour meeting, split over two half days, representatives from several metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and State departments of transportation (State DOTs) met to review SACOG's recent work with Robust Decision Making (RDM) and the potential for expanding this work using the TMIP Exploratory Modeling and Analysis Tool (TMIP-EMAT).
