Communicating with Other Programs

Transportation Systems Management and Operations (TSMO) often supports, impacts, or otherwise relates to other State and local transportation agency functions and offices such as design, maintenance, and safety. TSMO and these other disciplines can be carried out more effectively if the connections between these areas are strengthened. To provide context for the potential connections between TSMO and other disciplines, FHWA has developed a series of Fact Sheets. Other resources highlighting the linkages between TSMO and other disciplines are in development and will be added to this page.

Fact Sheets were developed for the first nine areas listed below as part of a single project. The tenth area, Information Technology (IT), was examined as part of separate project, in which 5 Fact Sheets were developed, along with other materials. All of the TSMO-IT resources are accessible through the Information Technology link below.

Fact Sheets (and for IT additional resources) were developed for ten areas to explain how TSMO relates to:

  1. Asset Management
  2. Construction
  3. Design
  4. Environment
  5. Human Resources
  6. Maintenance
  7. Performance Management
  8. Planning
  9. Safety
  10. Information Technology
