The Transportation Asset Management Council is expanding the practice of asset management statewide to enhance the productivity of investing in Michigan's roads and bridges through coordination and collaboration among state and local transportation agencies. The Council's activities include surveying and reporting the condition of roads and bridges by functional classification categories and assessing completed and planned investments in roads and bridges. The Council also supports the development of appropriate asset management methodologies and provides education and training on the benefits of developing road improvement programs through the use of asset management principles and procedures.
TAMC is required by P.A. 499 of 2002 to prepare an annual report detailing its activities during the previous year, and its plans for the upcoming year. The most recently published Annual Report can be found here, along with links to several previous Annual Reports.
To ensure consistency, TAMC has adopted several policies governing the way data will be collected, stored, and distributed, for both Federal-Aid Eligible and Non-Federal-Aid roads. Those policies can be found here, along with the current bylaws that govern the organization and operation of TAMC.
All road agencies in Michigan are required to report annually on their finances: How much income did they have? Where did it come from? And how did they spend it? This report is referred to as ADARS, which stands for Act 51 Distribution and Reporting System. Road agencies are also required to report on all asset management-related road projects they have completed in the previous year. The tool for that reporting is called the Investment Reporting Tool.
Administration, Communications, and Education Committee
Admin, Communications, and Education Committee
The Administration, Communications, and Education Committee (ACE) addresses issues associated with the documentation of TAMC protocol including documents such as the Council bylaws. The Committee also drafts and edits Council communications that include the Council's annual report to the legislature and official press releases. The Committee's education responsibilities involve the management of the Council's roster of workshops and conferences throughout the year.
<span class="sr-only">Data Committee</span>
The annual statewide data collection through Pavement Surface Evaluation and Ratings (PASER), the Investment Reporting Tool (IRT), and the Act 51 Distribution and Reporting System (ADARS) is initially analyzed by the Data Committee in association with MDOT staff to the Council. The Committee reviews the collection methodology as well as the most effective means or publishing the data itself.
