What is AASHTOWare Project?
AASHTOWare Project (referred to as AWP) is a website based software designed specifically for state DOTs to manage their complex construction processes. AASHTOWare Project has been customized by the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) to align with our business process, to track and monitor, and to comply with all federal and state regulations.
Who is supposed to use AASHTOWare?
AWP – AASHTOWare Project
Contract Authority – Permission to access a contract (to what extent is determined by their role).
Module Admin – Individuals who hold permissions in the AWP to perform administrator setup and system configurations. Each module has an admin and those admin are listed in AWP on the dashboard when you sign in.
Roles – Sets of permissions in AWP that allow a user to access certain areas of the system and complete specific tasks. Different roles have different sets of permissions, although some overlap.
Vendor – Contractor (Prime, subs and owner operators are all Vendors in AWP)
Vendor Authority – The ability to sign and submit payroll for a specific vendor (this authority is granted by the CRL Module admin when the user completes and submits this form: User Access Request Form)

Issues logging in?
What do I do if I get locked out?
If you enter the incorrect password three times you will be locked out of AWP for 40 minutes. After 40 minutes you will be able to login using the correct password. If you genuinely don’t know your webmail password or need to reset it, you can create an AlaskaNow Incident and request OIT reset your password (https://alaskanow.servicenowservices.com/oit/ ) or give them a call at (907) 334-2525.
What do I need to do so that my Contractor can submit their payroll?
My project is active, I granted the payroll person Contract Authority and added the subcontract, but the contractor says they still can’t see anything on their screen, what now?
What’s happening behind the scenes?
Currently there are a couple projects in each region being administered through the life of construction in AWP.
These projects are testing all of the system functionality of AWP using the following Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) and Computer Based Trainings (CBTs). If you are not on one of the above projects we ask that you do not complete any of these tasks in AWP. If you would like to see what some of these processes will look like when you start using AWP we encourage you to try out the CBTs.
