A Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP) can be considered a business plan that builds the case for making infrastructure investments and explains how resources will be used. This course, “Introduction to a Transportation Asset Management Plan,” is a 1-hour, Web-based training (WBT) that introduces the content and organization of a TAMP and the typical TAMP development process.
This training includes the following topics.
– The use of a TAMP in transportation agencies
– The typical content of a TAMP (including a comparison with requirements in MAP-21)
– Key components, including performance projections and the financial summary
– Examples of TAMPs at various levels of maturity
– Existing and anticipated use of a TAMP in state highway agencies
– The expected involvement of agency personnel in developing and updating a TAMP
This training includes audio clips from leaders in state highway agencies that convey the anticipated benefits from the development of a TAMP and the way they expect to use their TAMP. In addition, the WBT highlights the use of existing documentation to develop the TAMP and plans for enhancing the content of future TAMPs.
This training also serves as a prerequisite for NHI-131106B “Developing a Transportation Asset Management Plan”, which describes the role of a TAMP in a transportation agency and explores in some detail three important components: strategic performance management, risk assessment and management, and financial management.
