Road Asset Management


The first in a series of asset management webinars supported by the IRF Asset Management Committee, this webinar provides an introduction to asset management data and how it can be used to support maintenance contracts and Public Private Partnerships.

The presenters will highlight the critical role that asset management data plays from three different perspectives: data collection and management, data collection technology, and industry practices and use.

Representatives from different IRF members will discuss their agencies’ efforts in this area, providing insight into the challenges encountered and strategies for success.smadi-sharpened
