Increased productivity and innovativeness in the transport engineering and construction sector

Högakustenbron

In 2014, Transport Analysis was mandated by the government to analyse and evaluate STA's ongoing work to increase productivity and innovativeness in the transport engineering and construction sector.

One reason for creating the Swedish Transport Administration (STA, Trafikverket) in 2010 was to increase productivity and innovativeness in the transport engineering and construction sector. Since then, STA has been mandated by the government to endeavour to increase productivity and innovativeness in this sector, and to report on its own productivity. In 2012, the Productivity Commission (SOU 2012:39) presented a final report analysing STA's productivity work. In 2014, Transport Analysis was mandated by the government to analyse and evaluate STA's ongoing work.

This first Transport Analysis report on this subject takes as its starting point the conclusions arrived at by the Productivity Commission. We start by describing the structure of STA's work and, in an appendix, present a descriptive model outlining the logical steps this work entails. Transport Analysis has not been able to analyse all areas, but has focused on a few issues that are especially interesting for a preliminary report.
