Asset Management

Steering committee


The Asset Management Steering Committee is responsible for the development, updates and monitoring of the enhancements outlined in the TAMP, and oversight of Transportation Asset Management System development and other asset management initiatives. The Committee is also responsible for ensuring that the asset management principles promoted in the TAMP are fully embraced at all levels of the agency to help ensure that the anticipated performance outcomes are met.

Asset management governance and corresponding responsibilities extend beyond those required under the legislation. Responsibilities must include plans for expanding the assets that are covered in future TAMPs and for monitoring the agency’s success. As a result, it was recommended during TAMP development that an Asset Management (governance) Steering Committee be established.
