NTCIP Joint Committee
In 1996, AASHTO, ITE, and NEMA executed a Memorandum of Understanding to form and operate the NTCIP Joint Committee. The MOU served (and continues to serve) as a framework to:
- develop and complete a family of communications protocols under the NTCIP umbrella
- develop,adopt, revise and maintain protocols and other standards in the NTCIP family; and
- provide expertise and training in the application of NTCIP.
The NTCIP Joint Committee is the most senior NTCIP group, and the NTCIP Joint Committee consists of 18 individual members, with 6 appointed from each of the three SDOs. The predecessor of the NTCIP Joint Committee was the NTCIP Steering Group.
The NTCIP Joint Committee contributes to the NTCIP effort by providing oversight and general guidance for all NTCIP efforts. Specifically, the NTCIP Joint Committee reviews and accepts proposed draft documents at two stages in development: first, as User Comment Drafts, and then again as Recommended Standards. Recommended Standards are then referred to the SDOs for balloting and approval. Since AASHTO, ITE, and NEMA executed a Memorandum of Understanding (in 1996) to form and operate the NTCIP Joint Committee, it has overseen and implement the effort to develop, revise, and maintain the NTCIP family of standards; and to provide technical assistance and training in the application of the NTCIP.
The NTCIP Joint Committee consists of 18 individual members, with six appointed by each of the three SDOs. The NTCIP Joint Committee was preceded by the “NTCIP Steering Group.”
John Thai, City of Anaheim, chairs the NTCIP Joint Committee.
