Press Release: Decision Lens Wins Award with South Carolina DOT for Long-Range Scenario Planning and Performance Optimization

ARLINGTON, VA – May 18, 2023

Decision Lens is proud to announce our recent award as part of the South Carolina’s 2050 Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan. The use of Decision Lens will be leveraged for South Carolina’s long-range plan known as its 2050 Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan (SMTP).  

As part of the award, Decision Lens software will be used to understand, communicate, and interact with the impacts of annual spending by programmatic area for the transportation system’s long-range performance. This data will then be used to conduct scenario planning to assess both expected transportation performance and the trade-offs with other programmatic areas due to constrained budgets. The result will lead to data-driven decisions based on defined priorities, well-understood trade-offs, and appropriate spending levels.

According to Matt McDonald, the Vice President of Decision Lens’ State, Local & Commercial sectors, “More DOTs are investing time and resources into developing more data-driven approaches to planning. Decision Lens has proven across many implementations that it is a critical tool for organizations modernizing their planning and decision-making processes while providing the transparency and reporting capabilities current legislation and their constituency requires.”

The award continues a significant increase in DOT interest in Decision Lens. Today, many large DOTs have integrated its software into their planning process and distributed the capabilities to local MPOs. The result of the strategic prioritization has been an optimized budget and execution schedule which maximize resources and ensure the highest impact projects are well-executed.
