Defects for each asset item can be characterized in terms of the performance criteria and performance target established for that asset item. For example, by examining Table 1 for the "Paved Ditches" asset item, the defect can be defined as "meeting the performance criteria for less than 90% of the total amount of paved ditches present in the interstate system maintained by the contractor".

To state it more clearly, the performance criteria and targets are established with the long time experience of VDOT, and hence, an asset item perceived to be defective during the contract term when maintenance work is being performed, may well be perceived to be defective after the completion of the contract term, if it possesses the criteria and overall condition rating that make it defective. Therefore, there is no point in generating two different definitions of the defect: One for the contract term, and one for the warranty period.
