The State Transportation Innovation Council (STIC)
Partnership Between PennDOT and FHA
In 2010, the Federal Highway Administration and PennDOT partnered to form the State Transportation Innovation Council, commonly referred to as the STIC. The STIC is a team whose purpose is to promote a culture of innovation for creative answers to modern transportation problems throughout the state.
PennDOT has a program called the Next Generation, which is actually five initiatives to enhance operations and improve efficiency of the Pennsylvania roadways, and the STIC is one of those initiatives. So far, the initiatives in place have saved PennDOT an estimated $100 million per year.

Schoch was quoted as saying.
