Reference Guide for Asset/Fund Management

Through the delivery of programs and projects, CDOT is the steward of federal, state, and local funds. The laws and regulations surrounding the management of those funds can change with each federal authorization bill or the Colorado legislative session. Additionally, the TC and executive management regularly adopt policies and procedures to help uniformly guide the implementation of such laws and regulations.

Table 5-1 below references the reader to many of those requirements. OnTrack will leverage those by maintaining relevant triggers, thresholds, and other controls.
