Key Responsibilities of this branch:

The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) has been vital to the FHWA since it was begun. The data reported in the system has had a direct impact on funding, planning, performance measurement, and public accessibility to a vast amount of highway related data. The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) is a federally mandated inventory system and planning tool, designed to assess the nation's highway system. HPMS was created in 1978 as a continuing, sample-based monitoring program that requires annual data reporting instead of biennial special studies. The Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) has been a highly successful federal-state partnership for over 30 years.
