    Prior to the start of each federal fiscal year (October 1), WisDOT Research Program staff evaluate availability of funds based on federal allocations, ending pooled fund projects and other internal factors. Based on this information, staff requests pooled fund nominatiuons which are then ranked by bureau directors and division administrators for approval. Funding requests for pooled fund projects are saved for a mid-year evaluation or the next federal fiscal year solicitation.
