TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that discusses how state departments of transportation and metropolitan planning organizations may integrate performance and asset management into their decision-making processes. These organizations are considering changes to how they do business after the Federal Highway Administration finalized rules for performance and asset management in response to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. The presenters will discuss how to manage the changes and provide examples of what has worked and what has not for agencies that have undertaken the process.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Strategic Management.
