Strategic development helps set the Department's direction, identifies specific initiatives, and facilitates employee teamwork to implement the projects necessary to achieve continuous organizational improvements.
The Strategic Plan guides the Department’s priorities for the next three to four years. It provides a broad roadmap, outlining where the agency currently stands, what it wants to look like in the future, and what actions it must take to get there.
This plan is comprised of four goals, each with objectives, strategies, action steps and performance measures. These strategies support the agency’s commitment to the ongoing stewardship of the state transportation system.

What is Transportation Asset Management?
Transportation Asset Management (TAM) is a comprehensive, integrated and systematic approach to cost effectively manage Georgia’s physical transportation assets. This is done through the use of strategic goals, performance measures and data.
Sustaining infrastructure through asset preservation is at the core of TAM. Life cycle management—looking at an asset over its life span and applying preservation treatments—prolongs useful life. This is cost effective in the long run and does not delay routine maintenance, which, over time, may result in complete deterioration and costly asset replacement.
Statewide Travel Demand Model
The Georgia DOT developed a statewide travel demand model to evaluate the impact of major transportation infrastructure and land use investment strategies throughout the state. The model provides GDOT and its partners the ability to evaluate changes in travel modes and patterns for people and goods, major changes in land use and economic policies, and alternative modes of person travel.
MPO Travel Demand Model
The Georgia DOT Office of Planning voluntarily develops, maintains, and updates travel demand forecasting (TDF) models on behalf of all urban areas of Georgia except Atlanta and Chattanooga. TDF models are an integral part of transportation planning. These models are used by GDOT and Georgia's metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) to evaluate the performance of road networks in the state's urban areas.
Role of Travel Demand Models
The models play an important role in supporting the development of the federally required Long Range Transportation Plans (LRTPs). They are used to forecast the impact and effectiveness of various transportation improvement projects in the future. The forecasting process provides detailed information, such as traffic volumes, level of service on the surface transportation network, and other important information to be used by engineers and planners in their designs and decision making process.
Georgia DOT performs Value Engineering (VE) Studies on all construction projects with total combined costs of $50 million or more except for any project procured in accordance with code sections 32-2-79, 32-2-80 (private participation), and 32-2-81 (Design-Build).
