AASHTOWare Project™ – APOST

What is AASHTOWare Project™?

AASHTOWare Project LogoAASHTOWare Project™ software (AWP) is a data management system created by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). This software is the complete, enterprise-wide solution for managing a transportation agency’s construction program.

Many transportation departments nationwide use AWP modules. It enables the management of information throughout the entire contract and construction cycle – from cost estimation to proposal preparation, bid letting, construction and material management, and data collection. AASHTOWare Project software allows the creation of a consistent, integrated view of the contract process during each phase, thanks to numerous modules that meet a state's preconstruction and construction needs. Plus, there’s a module for managing labor and civil rights.
Web-based AASHTOWare Project software consists of five modules:
  1.   AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction™
  2.   AASHTOWare Project Civil Rights & Labor™
  3.   AASHTOWare Project Construction & Materials™
  4.   AASHTOWare Project Estimation™
  5.   AASHTOWare Project Bids™
We have currently implemented two of the five modules within ODOT:
  • AASHTOWare Project Estimation – Estimation System
  • AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction – Proposal, Estimates, Letting, and Award System
In addition, ODOT has begun APOST, the implementation project for two other modules:
  • AASHTOWare Project Civil Rights & Labor – Civil Rights and Labor Management System
  • AASHTOWare Project Construction & Materials – Construction Management, Materials Management and Laboratory Information Management System

What is APOST?

ODOT is implementing the AASHTOWare Project Construction & Materials (C&M) and AASHTOWare Project Civil Rights & Labor (CRL) modules. We’ve nicknamed this project, “APOST,” an acronym that stands for AASHTOWare Project One Source of Truth. This allows us to assimilate multiple systems into one unified database. It creates a consistent, integrated view of the construction contracting process and facilitates various reporting requirements. With AWP, we will have one source for data that extends from preconstruction (already implemented) through project final acceptance.

APOST allows the simplification of our business and management reporting. In addition, it replaces aging databases with a current data management system. AASHTOWare Project supports the programs required for construction and civil rights tracking. It ends the practice of dividing data into multiple systems.
