FHWA TAM Expert Task Group

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.

The Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group was formed in order to:

  • Outline a framework for financially sustainable infrastructure and service delivery that clarifies connections between asset management, stewardship, risk management, performance management, and long-term financial planning;
  • Identify strategies for advancing asset management practice and influencing change within state DOTs and partnering with transportation agencies by addressing gaps in the framework, roles and responsibilities, drivers, tools, and/or workforce skills;
  • Provide input to FHWA, AASHTO, and TRB regarding direction, definitions, processes, tools, and templates associated with implementation of state and local transportation asset management plans;
  • Develop and implement a plan for communicating the work of the TAM ETG to the transportation community.

FHWA TAM ETG Webinar Series

The TAM ETG sponsors a webinar series for transportation practitioners, designed to provide a practical introduction to topics in asset management. These include: target setting in asset management plans, optimization and cross-asset allocation, network lifecycle analysis, and more. On this page, you can find links to register for upcoming webinars and access slides or recordings from past webinars.
