That program is a public-private partnership that provides single-source testing of common products used by state DOTs and manufactured to AASHTO standards. It includes auditing and onsite inspection of factories manufacturing those products.

Gillispie is chief engineer at the West Virginia DOT's Division of Highways, and a former director of its Materials Control, Soils and Testing Division.

His two-year appointment, which is subject to confirmation by the AASHTO executive committee, runs through the end of the association's 2019 annual meeting.
