1. Transportation Asset Management Plan

The Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP) will allow California to maximize results by managing the life-cycle of transportation assets strategically to minimize costs and manage risks. It will provide a framework for understanding performance gaps, prioritizing actions to address the gaps, and establishing business processes that streamline asset management activities. It will also allow us to meet both federal and state legislative requirements. 

A series of 3 workshops were completed to date to receive input from stakeholders and inform the TAMP development.  Caltrans is requesting your comments on these summaries to fully capture a broad cross-section of perspectives to be considered for inclusion in the final draft TAMP being developed over the next few months.

C.  Financial Plan & Investment Strategies Workshop

Workshop Purpose
A financial plan and investment strategies are required elements of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress and Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (MAP-21) legislation. California’s TAMP will include a financial plan which summarizes current and future funding sources and uses, and outlines projected financial constraints. The TAMP will also include investment strategies for delivering asset performance given available funds combined with agency goals and objectives. The June 14, 2017, Financial Plan and Investment Strategies workshop brought together a cross section of stakeholders.  The workshop focused on the following topics:
  • Develop a common understanding of FHWA requirements for TAMP financial plans and investment strategies
  • Review funding assumptions for California’s roads and bridges on the National Highway System (NHS)
  • Review projections of future asset conditions
  • Determine how best to project conditions and funding levels for NHS assets owned by Caltrans and other agencies
  • Determine asset investment priorities
The summary of the workshop can be found at this link:  http://www.dot.ca.gov/assetmgmt/documents/Financial_Plan_and_Investment_Strategies_Workshop_Summary.pdf
