Quarterly Review of Inactive Projects
Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are the roles of the Local Agency in managing inactive projects?

    To meet FHWA requirements, Division of Local Assistance (DLA), Office of Project Delivery and Safety, has created reports for locally federal funded projects based on data from FHWA’s database (FMIS). Additional information such as responsible agency is added to the report for ease of project identification. Local Agencies should review their projects and do one of the following:

    1. Submit complete and correct invoice for eligible expenditure to Caltrans Local Program Accounting by the specific due date.
    2. Identify unneeded funds and submit deobligation request to DLAE.
    3. Submit justification along with all backup documentation to DLAE for projects that do not have eligible expenditures to be invoiced or do not have unneeded funds to be deobligated.
