The reporting requirements, and applicable rules and guideline for University Transportation Centers (UTCs) are outlined in “Grant Deliverables and Reporting” and “Grant Provisions” and all funded PIs are required to familiarize themselves with these documents.
PacTrans is required to submit to the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Technology and Research (OST-R) Grant Administrator a Program Progress Performance Report (PPPR) twice a year. The PPPR follows the new uniform format developed by the National Science Foundation for use in progress reporting on Federal research grants. UTCs are required to post their PPPRs on their websites. Additionally, PacTrans will submit on an annual basis a “Recipient Share Report” as well as a “Performance Indicators Report.” All three reports will include inputs from all five PacTrans consortium partner universities.
Semi-Annual Reporting: All research projects have semi-annual reporting periods. Principal Investigators are required to report project progress and expenditures on a semi-annual basis.
Technology Transfer Plan on Research Outcome: To facilitate technology transfer, at least one deliverable should be designed for technology transfer. It could be a video, website or a presentation file. Technical report can not serve for this purpose.
The following templates will be used by all funded PIs for reporting as outlined in the award letter to comply with PacTrans OST-R reporting deliverables:
