GDOT Research Needs Statements (RNS)

GDOT Research Needs Statements (RNS)

An RNS is the basic means of initiating a GDOT research project and is required for all research supported through the core GDOT research program. An RNS also represents the basic means of communicating a research need to GDOT technical staff, decision-makers, and sponsoring offices and should be written with all of these groups in mind.

Each fall, typically in the August to September timeframe, GDOT opens a call for Research Needs Statements (RNS). The RNS call will be posted on this page. The RNS call is open to all GTI universities. To be a GTI member a university must be within the state of Georgia. If you are unsure if your university is a GTI member please reach out to the GTI Administrative Manager (Robert Carswell) or GTI Director (Michael Hunter).

Developing an effective Research Need Statement (RNS) is critical to successfully undertaking research with GDOT. An RNS must contain clear statements of need, approach, benefits, and implementation potential. Potential submitters are highly encouraged to review RNS guidelines and relevant other documents on the GTI website prior to submission.
