Subcommittee on Risk Management

Subcommittee on Risk Management


Risk is the positive or negative effects of uncertainty or variability on agency objectives. Risk management is the cultures, processes, and structures that are directed toward the effective management of potential risks. The focus of the Subcommittee on Risk Management is on the development, implementation, and use of tools, methods, and strategies by a state transportation agency in order to take advantage of opportunities and mitigate potential threats. Risk and Risk Management are specifically identified in federal requirements and best practices. The management of risks is applicable to performance metrics through the identification of threats and opportunities that will hinder or enhance the ability to meet established performance measures. Risk-based asset management plans are also a requirement for State DOT Transportation Asset Management Plans. Both the Committees on Performance-Based Management and Transportation System Security and Resilience address the topic of transportation resilience through a better understanding of how risk management techniques can be used to better support a resilience approach to managing the transportation system.

Purpose

Transportation resilience is the ability of a state transportation agency to plan, prepare, react, recover, and adapt to adverse events. Both the Committees on Performance-Based Management and Transportation System Security and Resilience address the topic of transportation resilience through a better understanding of how risk management techniques can be used to better support a resilience approach to managing the transportation system. Risk management is defined as the evaluation of the probability of positive or negative effects of uncertainty or variability on agency objectives and the ability of the agency to be more resilient. Risk management includes the cultures, processes, and structures that are directed toward the effective management of potential risks. The focus of this subcommittee is on the development, implementation, and use of tools, methods, and strategies by a state transportation agency in order to take advantage of opportunities and mitigate potential threats.


Goals

  1. Serve as the forum to engage subcommittee members on the sharing of ideas and examples of how state transportation agencies are implementing risk management within their organizations.
  2. Develop needed guidelines, guidance, training, and educational resources to facilitate the implementation of risk management approaches within a state transportation agency.
  3. Research, develop, and disseminate tools and techniques associated with risk management such as risk analysis, vulnerability assessments, etc.
The Subcommittee on Risk Management meets on the second Monday of even-numbered months from 1:00 to 2:00 pm EASTERN time.

FHWA TAM ETG

FHWA TAM Expert Task Group


The FHWA Office of Asset Management has formed the Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group (TAM ETG) as a forum to discuss changes in the way highway agencies are managing assets. The structure and membership of the TAM ETG were intentionally designed to ensure interaction with key AASHTO and Transportation Research Board committees.

About the TAM ETG

The Transportation Asset Management Expert Task Group was formed in order to:
  • Outline a framework for financially sustainable infrastructure and service delivery that clarifies connections between asset management, stewardship, risk management, performance management, and long-term financial planning;
  • Identify strategies for advancing asset management practice and influencing change within state DOTs and partnering with transportation agencies by addressing gaps in the framework, roles and responsibilities, drivers, tools, and/or workforce skills;
  • Provide input to FHWA, AASHTO, and TRB regarding direction, definitions, processes, tools, and templates associated with implementation of state and local transportation asset management plans;
  • Develop and implement a plan for communicating the work of the TAM ETG to the transportation community.
The best way to get involved with TAM ETG is through the TAM ETG webinar series. This series for transportation practitioners is designed to provide a practical introduction to topics in asset management. These include: target setting in asset management plans, optimization and cross-asset allocation, network lifecycle analysis, and more.
