Need Statements - RFP 2021 (FY2023)

Need Statements will be released July 30, 2021.

The Need Statements are presented on this page in three ways: (1) sorted below by Research Categories; (2) to the right in a single downloadable PDF with links to information; and (3) to the right in a list in order of Need Statement number. This RFP is only available to qualified universities (see more information.) Please note that an active master contract must be in place as of December 1, 2020 to be selected.

Preliminary literature searches, listed with the projects below, were conducted by the MnDOT Library for the purposes of developing research need statements and doing due-diligence to avoid duplication of research. They are not a comprehensive literature search for the development of the project proposal.
