BESDT Phase 1 BESDT System Development
Job Description

The Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) team at the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) would like a web-based solution to capture, modify, and search data on crashes around the state. In addition to the web interface, a windows service will be developed to import and run automated tasks to modify the crash data into CDOT specific coding and format. This solution would replace and improve upon the existing EARS application (developed in FoxPro). Behavioral and Engineering Safety Data for Transportation (BESDT) is the new name of the application.
