Quarterly Review of Inactive Projects
Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can District Local Assistance Engineer (DLAE) or Division of Local Assistance (DLA) take a project off the list?

    No, DLAEs and DLA are not authorized to take any project(s) off the list. Once the inactive list is generated from the FMIS database, the project will remain on the list until a financial transaction is captured in FMIS databases. (Please note that awarding a contract is NOT a financial transaction.)

    If there is any technical FMIS error that resulted in the project being placed on the list, notify your local DLAE to do further research on the project and once the error is confirmed, DLA will inform FHWA to correct it in the FMIS database.
