GAO Study Released

Dear ASECTT Members,

ASECTT wishes to be the first to provide you with a copy of the 111 page GAO audit of SMS Methodology. It should gladden your heart to know that someone in government has provided a thoroughgoing study and understands the issues we have been raising. The GAO is to be complimented on its thoroughness.  

View the GAO Study here.

Yours Truly,

Comments on Proposed Enhancements to the Motor Carrier Safety Measurement System (SMS) Public Web Site

Dear ASECTT member:
Attached is a copy of our Comments regarding “Proposed Enhancements to the Motor Carrier Safety Measurement System (SMS) Public Web Site,” Docket No. FMCSA-2013-0392.  We included some new peer group analyses which further reinforces our conclusions that the agency’s grade on the curve methodology is fatally flawed and cannot withstand an objective evaluation of its merits.  Hopefully we have reminded the agency that its proposed PR campaign ignores material issues which must be addressed.
