Today, agencies are moving towards a more sustainable, cross-cutting, and evolved program. In the closing session, each of the Track Chairs will share highlights from their sessions related to ways in which: • The practice of asset management is evolving, • Agencies are creating sustainable asset management programs that are embedded in the organization’s culture, • Technology is influencing the way decisions are made, and • Data are being used to speak to multiple audiences. The session will conclude with a summary of gaps that would benefit from further research or technology transfer efforts.

TRB’s Conference Proceedings on the Web 25: Proceedings of the 12th National Conference on Transportation Asset Management is a compilation of the presentations and summary of the ensuing discussions at a July 14–15, 2018, meeting held in San Diego, California.

During the meeting, attendees explored the development of integrated investment decisions within an uncertain financial planning environment; and the development and implementation of data systems, best practices in data collection, methods used to estimate the expected return on investment, and strategies for communicating results.

The meeting also addressed best practices and lessons learned from Transit Asset Management (TAM) implementation efforts; offered a forum for the sharing of organizational transformations and key strategies for building an effective TAM workforce; and explored the development and maturation of agency transportation asset management plans (TAMPs).

The structure of the program also ensured that transit and risk and resilience were included in the areas of exploration during the meeting.
