Comprehensive Transportation Asset Management - The Washington State Experience
This case study details the asset management process at Washington State DOT. WSDOT has developed a TAM program that includes performance measures and targets, data management systems, and innovative reporting methods such as their publication, “Measures, Markers and Mileposts: WSDOT’s quarterly report to the Governor and the Washington State Transportation Commission on transportation programs and department management.” This report, also known as "The Gray Notebook," links the agency's performance measures to its objectives. The WSDOT's core objective is to optimize the state's entire transportation network through its decentralized approach to asset management. This report on their asset management program is part of the FHWA Office of Asset Management's series of case studies on TAM, produced with the goal of sharing information between agencies to improve efficiency.
