Closing Thoughts

Since the late 1990s, CDOT has been constantly improving its data management practices to support better investment decisionmaking through Asset Management. At times changes have come quickly, while at other times they have been slow, but the department has always had a consistent goal in mind-to ensure efficient resource allocation. CDOT is constantly nurturing and reevaluating its business processes and information management tools to ensure this goal is met. In their words, "We are never really done."
