Inactive Project Information

Caltrans Division of Local Assistance, Office of Project Implementation-South, through District Local Assistance Engineer (DLAE), provides guidance and support to Local Agencies in managing the inactive projects, and participate in the quarterly review with FHWA.

In response to recent changes in FHWA's Guidance on "Inactive Obligations", the Department is going to manage "Inactive Projects" as follows:

1. If the Department does not receive an invoice for more than six months, the project will be posted on the Department's website.

2. If the Department does not receive an invoice in the next six months (12 months without invoicing), the Department will deobligate the unexpended balances on a quarterly basis according to FHWA guidance.

3. It is the Local Agencies responsibility to work in collaboration with their respective District Local Assistance Engineers (DLAEs) to ensure their projects are invoiced timely to avoid deobligation.

4. Inactive project listing is posted below and will be updated weekly.
