SECTIONS AND PROGRAMS
Asset Management & Planning Division
The Asset Management and Planning Division provides the expertise and resources to support performance based management and to use data in improving project decision making to increase the accountability and transparency of the NMDOT. Implementation of a Transportation Asset Management Plan that meets new Federal performance management requirements is key to improving our transportation system to meet the mobility and access needs of the individual and business users. The New Mexico Transportation Plan serves as the primary framework for guiding decisions at all levels within the NMDOT and the Transportation Asset Management Plan is a mid-term plan that addresses how the NMDOT will improve or preserve the condition of the assets and the performance of the National Highway System. All projects in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) are consistent with the Transportation Asset Management Plan and the New Mexico Transportation Plan.
The Asset Management & Planning Division consists of the Pavement Management and Design Bureau, Data Management Bureau, Maintenance Management Bureau, Statewide Planning Bureau, Research Bureau and International Programs Office.
Tamara P. Haas, P.E., Division Director
As NMDOT moves toward the implementation of MAP-21 and associated Transportation Asset Management Plan (TAMP), NMDOT Pavement Management will be utilized more and more to support the state’s long term plans and vision.
NMDOT Pavement Management & Design performs the following activities:
- Assess both current and future pavement conditions
- Estimate funding needs to achieve target roadway condition levels
- Identify pavement preservation, rehabilitation and reconstruction recommendations that optimize the use of available funding
- Evaluate and illustrate the impact of different investment levels and treatment strategies to both short- and long-term pavement conditions
- Justify funding levels.
- Evaluate the long-term impacts of changes in materials properties, construction practices, and design procedures on pavement performance.
Information that describes NMDOT’s methodology and procedures for collecting pavement roughness, rutting and distress data, the Department’s Data Quality Management Plan, how pavement roughness, rutting and distress data are used to calculate pavement performance indexes of roadway sections are available upon request.

This Section is responsible for management of highway maintenance performance data and ensuring the data entered into the maintenance management database meets the department quality assurance requirements. The maintenance management database holds key information on work performed and expenditures on transportation assets in support of the NMDOT Transportation Asset Management Program. Maintenance data analysis is a key component in the NMDOT’s performance management program and provided to FHWA and the Legislative Finance Committee.
