There is a significant interest among State and local transportation organizations in implementing Asset Management. To date, more than 25 States have already undertaken several forms of the initiative. The 8th National Conference on Transportation Asset Management, co-sponsored by TRB and AASHTO and others, will help FHWA ensure that transportation agencies have the opportunity to make asset management principles work in their organization. Our role is to help provide practitioners a venue for sharing their ideas and experiences. The location of the conference is to be determined for November 2009. Interactive workshops on various topics related to Asset Management and case studies of various agency implementation efforts will be included in the program.
The conference is designed to be a forum for practitioners, researchers, and others to share information on a variety of transportation asset management topics. The conference will cover surface transportation modes only. Sessions will cover a broad range of topics that will be of interest to agencies that are in the early stages of implementation of asset management as well as agencies that are in later stages of the implementation process.
The focus of the conference is to share real experiences from real transportation professionals who were implementing aspects of asset management.
1. To enhance the working knowledge of the asset managment personnel in the many state Departments of Transportation concerning the best practices for the asset management.
2. To provide a conduit for enhancing the practical knowledge of pool members concerning their asset management activities.
The Transportation Research Board TRB will be retained by the FHWA to provide assistance in the principal tasks below:
1. Peer Exchange Roundtable - Provide a venue for the member states to come together and exchange information on what has worked and has not worked in their asset management endeavors. Members can learn from each others accomplishments and mistakes, therefore, saving time and money. The roundtable would develop Research Needs Statements to be submitted to various funding sources to address high priority concerns. It would also make recommendations for 2009 Asset Management conference sessions where national public, private and academic experts could focus on potential solutions and improvements. One member from each pool fund state would be invited to participate in this peer exchange.
2. Asset Management Conference - Provide a forum to bring together national asset management experts to educate DOT asset management practitioners. Pool fund members would be provided travel and registration scholarships to the conference. Two members from each pool fund state would eligible for scholarships to the conference that covers travel and registration.
3. Assist pool fund members in developing a periodic Asset Management email info sheet that would be sent to DOT executives. This would be high level information that would be sent to DOT executives to make them aware of asset management accomplishments, concerns and innovations with the hope of garnering support for the DOT&039;s asset management program. This would provide states another way of getting pertinent information in front of their appropriate decision makers.
We are seeking $10,000 per participant. Although the project funding crosses 2 years, funding would be required in FY 2009, to ensure that we are able to provide services as anticipated. For each member on the pool fund, we anticipate providing the following:
Travel for one participant to the peer exchange in Washington, DC (most likely to occur in April 2009)
Travel and registration for two participants to the actual 2009 Transportation Asset Management Conference in fall 2009.
