Event Description

The Build America Transportation Investment Center (BATIC) Institute is hosting a National Financial Management Symposium May 20-22 at the Sheraton Pentagon City in Arlington, Virginia. The symposium will serve as a capstone of peer exchanges on financial management topics that have been hosted by the BATIC Institute over the last two years. The symposium endeavors to reach as many state DOTs as possible to focus on essential and timely transportation finance topics in a manner that answers questions and suggests improvements, going beyond just sharing common concerns and current practices. The overall goal is to help state DOTs build internal capacity to improve financial programs and deliver projects more cost effectively. The symposium will focus on key topical presentations and facilitated group exchanges, providing opportunities for discussion and networking.

Symposium attendance will be capped at 150, with up to three participants per state DOT attending. It is anticipated that participants could be a mix of mid- and senior-level officials drawn from the following major practice areas: Planning and Programming (e.g., planning manager, programming manager, STIP coordinator, construction program manager) and Budget and Finance (e.g., chief financial officer, director of administration, budget analyst/officer, fiscal analyst, accountant, cash/funds manager, treasurer, controller). A key feature of previous BATIC Institute peer exchanges has been active participation from FHWA Division Offices and headquarters staff. FHWA participants may include financial managers and program analysts from Division Offices and subject matter experts from the Office of the Chief Financial Officer and the Resource Center.
