Standing Committee on Finance and Administration (SCOFA)

WELCOME FROM CHAIR

Welcome to the website of the AASHTO Standing Committee on Finance and Administration, or SCOFA. We address a wide range of issues and interests including general administrative practices, civil rights, financial management, transportation finance policy, uniform accounting procedures, human resource management, information systems, legal affairs, public affairs, and internal/external audit. Given the current economic and political climate, there is no shortage of challenges ahead of us in the area of transportation finance and administration. I hope that you will find this website to be a useful resource in addressing such challenges.

Commissioner
Tennessee Department of Transportation
