The LIST Committee is tasked with preparing a Triennial Strategic Plan (TSP) to TRB in which it critically evaluates its performance over the last three years and sets down plans for next 3-7 years. The TSP also provides an overview of the health, relevancy, and key issues facing the committee and the transportation information environment in its "Future Outlook Statement".

After reviewing the TSP, the LIST committee members agreed that the "Future Outlook Statement" by itself was an important document that needed to be shared with the community at large and urged the outgoing chair, Ken Winter, to publish it as a stand-alone document which you can read here: The Landscape for Transportation Information Professionals, 2012
