The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is a non-profit, non-partisan association that represents the member highway and transportation departments in 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

It also includes associate membership status for several toll authorities, cities/counties, and Canadian provinces. AASHTO created the Cooperative Computer Software Development program when it realized that the commercial marketplace was not effectively meeting the needs of its members. Since 1985, this program has allowed its members to cost effectively develop, maintain, and enhance the AASHTOWare® software.
