Classification Code Date
1100.63B, Chg. 9 May 12, 2003  

  1. PURPOSE. To issue revised pages to the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) section of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Organization Manual.


    1. The Office of Operations has realigned its offices’ functions to improve the delivery of Operations programs, products, and services. Some of the more substantive changes to the Manual are as follows:

      (1) The mission and functions statement for the Office of Operations is revised to reflect its role in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) deployment in the area of highway transportation.

      (2) The Office of Operations Technology Services is abolished and its activities are reassigned to other Operations offices, e.g., internal professional development activities are assigned to the individual Operations offices, and administrative, policy support, and strategic and performance planning functions are transferred under the Associate Administrator for Operations’ office.

      (3) The Office of Travel Management is retitled as the Office of Transportation Management, and assumes responsibility for: Operations asset management; coordination of non-freight legislative initiatives within the Office of Operations; and the development of technology applications, products, and practices to improve routine and emergency travel management relating to highway capacity analysis, traffic flow, and access management.

      (4) The Office of Transportation Operations assumes responsibility for all public safety and security activities within the Office of Operations, including traffic incident management and emergency preparedness.

    2. In an unrelated change, the introductory narrative is revised to identify the Director of Field Services-West as the Regional Emergency Transportation Coordinator (RETCO) for DOT Regions 5 and 7, and the Division Engineer for the Federal Lands Highway Central Division as the RETCO for DOT Region 8.

    3. The FHWA organization chart, introductory narrative, and mission and function statements are revised to reflect the above listed changes and other related changes resulting from the realignment of the Office of Operations.
