Status of AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics™ Solicitation

November 26, 2018

In July, AASHTO released a project proposal and solicitation for the development of AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics. This new addition to the AASHTOWare Project software suite will enable agencies to have access to data-driven decision support and historical data analysis on both web-based and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms. As part of the solicitation, the Federal Highway Administration approved a waiver allowing agencies to use 100% of federal dollars from the State Planning and Research (SP&R) fund. In order to accommodate interested agencies going through the funding approval process, AASHTO has extended the deadline to commit until Monday, December 3rd. Check out the AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics Video to learn more about how your agency can benefit from participating in this project.

As one of the 12 agencies participating in the AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics solicitation, you will have a seat at the table to:

  • Set, guide, and oversee the direction of development for the project as a Technical Review Team (TRT) member
  • Have access to new features in production every two to four weeks
  • Be a part of onsite trainings and review sessions
  • Take advantage of huge cost savings in license fees

We are proud to announce that seven agencies have committed to the solicitation effort so far! A big thanks goes out to Kansas, Iowa, South Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, Ohio, and Louisiana for agreeing to be a part of this project.

If you are interested in joining the list of agencies that have made the commitment to participate in this project and would like to see how the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development determined that, by participating in the solicitation, they would actually save money over a seven-year period, then check out the AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics webinar by logging into Cloverleaf, going to the “Products” on the left hand menu, and clicking the “Webinars” link.

The AASHTOWare Project Data Analytics module will be built to maximize the potential of the AASHTOWare Project unified database and will aid in breaking down departmental silos by using and analyzing data from all areas of an agency’s construction project. For questions regarding the intent and benefits of the new software, the project solicitation, or the AASHTOWare Cooperative Software Development Program, please contact Brian Korschgen, AASHTO Project Manager.
