The FHWA Office of Asset Management has formed the Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group (TAM ETG) as a forum to discuss changes in the way highway agencies are managing assets. The structure and membership of the TAM ETG were intentionally designed to ensure interaction with key AASHTO and Transportation Research Board committees.

While the integration of transportation asset management has grown in recent decades, more transportation agencies are adopting TAM practices following the passage of the MAP-21 legislation. This presentation explores some of the challenges of TAM adoption including system integration and the communication of results.
The first webinar in the FHWA TAM Expert Task Group's series covers target setting for asset management plans. This presentation provides insight into activities conducted outside of the US as well as perspectives from Ohio and Minnesota. The presentation slides are available here.

This webinar builds on the previous webinars by providing an opportunity for transportation agencies to share their experiences with conducting network-level life cycle analysis, including how the results of the analysis have influenced their investment strategies.
The slides for this presentation are available for each part: introduction, Michigan DOT, Ohio DOT, and Seattle DOT
Traditionally, agency investment decisions have focused on individual projects that address the needs of a single asset, such as a pavement or bridge. As agencies have advanced their asset management practices, there has been increasing interest in establishing investment strategies that cross the traditional silos. During this webinar, the TAM ETG will present its White Paper on the topic and delve into this topic in detail with a panel of state DOT executives. The presentation slides are here.

This presentation is focused on defining and explaining cross-asset decision making. This is the idea that investments are allocated by analyzing the perceived needs of multiple programs and asset classes and are distributed based upon the simultaneous quantified prioritization of utility. It focuses on three types–benefit/cost analysis, multi-criteria decision analysis, and risk/reward-based. The presentation slides are available here.
This presentation focuses on the training necessary for adequate performance management at State DOTs and the advantages of a stable culture can provide. Ideally, a team works synergistically to produce a product greater than the sum of its part. However, this becomes possible only when the members of the team possess diverse and varied skillsets.
