This chapter of the manual describes two functional areas of TxDOT’s Transportation Planning and Programming Division (TPP):
- data file creation/maintenance and reporting
These functional areas provide support to the overall project development process.
Primary responsibility for these functional areas lies in the Data Management Section of TPP. The Data Management Section (DMS) is responsible for collecting, archiving, and supplying public roadway data to various TxDOT divisions, sections, and districts as well as to other state agencies. These data are used for a variety of purposes, including planning and project development. Automation support for the entire TPP Division comes from DMS.
