Aurigo Software selected by Hawaii DOT to modernize planning and funding

Aurigo Software, a provider of capital planning and construction management software, has won a technology contract from the Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) to enhance and streamline the state’s transportation planning process.
Aurigo SoftwareThe Hawaii Department of Transportation will adopt Aurigo’s advanced software solution, Masterworks, to effectively prioritize project requests, efficiently manage the allocation of state and federal funds, and closely monitor program performance throughout the project lifecycle.

HDOT oversees the management of 11 commercial service airports, four general aviation airports, 10 commercial harbors, and a vast network of highways spanning thousands of lane miles.

With the implementation of Aurigo’s Masterworks, HDOT will gain the capability to create capital projects, establish project priorities, and accurately estimate project costs. The software will facilitate the seamless setup and tracking of funding from various sources, enabling the agency to associate, update, and consolidate funds.

Aurigo Software said the system will automate the process of obligating and reimbursing federal funds by integrating with the Financial Management Information System (FMIS) of the Federal Highway Administration.

Moreover, the Masterworks software will integrate with HDOT’s existing technology stack, including design software provided by Autodesk. This integration will create a comprehensive digital lifecycle management solution for the plan-build environment.

Aurigo Software said pre-configured application interfaces will enable HDOT to efficiently transfer data between different project phases, establishing a reliable single source of truth throughout the entire lifecycle.

As per the state’s latest transportation plan, HDOT aims to deliver capital improvements totaling over $1.4 billion in 2024, enhancing Hawaii’s highways, airports, and harbors. The state’s highway system plays a crucial role in providing mobility to over 1.4 million residents, including a civilian labor force of approximately 680,000 individuals, over 8 million visitors, and facilitating the transportation of over 32 million tons of freight annually.

“By modernizing our capital planning operations, we will expedite approval processes and deliver the necessary infrastructure to meet the current and future needs of the people of Hawaii,” Ed Sniffen, the Director of the Hawaii Department of Transportation, said.

Hawaii joins a growing number of states, including Utah, Delaware, Massachusetts, and Iowa, in adopting Masterworks to modernize and optimize their capital programs.
