ATP Project Reporting

Upon acceptance into the Active Transportation Program (ATP), implementing agencies must submit Project Progress Reports, a Project Completion Report and a Final Delivery Report to Caltrans on the activities and progress made toward implementation of the project. An agency implementing a project in the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) selected portion of the program must submit copies of reports to Caltrans and the MPO to ensure projects are executed in a timely fashion and within the scope and budget identified when the decision was made to fund the project.

On April 28, 2017, the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 1 (Beall, Chapter 5, Statutes of 2017), known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, and created new and augmented existing programs, including, but not limited to, the Active Transportation Program (ATP). On March 21, 2018, the SB1 Accountability and Transparency Guidelines were adopted. These guidelines now require quarterly Project Progress Reports, a Project Completion Report and a Final Delivery Report for ALL ATP projects through June 2019. Beginning in July 2019, reporting is required semi-annually.

New Reporting Process: CalSMART is an online reporting tool that has been in use for several months for the Local Streets and Roads (LSR) and State of Good Repair (SGR) programs. Caltrans has expanded the capacity of CalSMART to allow it to be used for quarterly progress reporting on other Senate Bill 1 programs, including the ATP. Users who already have an account need to login and request access to the “Other SB 1 Funded Programs” module.

New Users: To register for an account, go to calsmart.dot.ca.gov and request access to the “Other SB 1 Funded Programs” module. You are encouraged to use the following resources:

For Completed Projects:
*Completion Reports are due within six months of construction contract acceptance or the project becoming operable (open to the public), or all NI activities are complete.
*Final Delivery Reports are due within 180 days of the conclusion of all remaining project activities beyond the acceptance of the construction contract to reflect final project expenditures, any changes that occurred after submittal of the Completion Report and an updated evaluation of the benefits.

If your project meets these requirements, complete the Local Assistance Program Guidelines Exhibit 22-T(PDF) along with the Exhibit 22-T Instructions(Word). Exhibit 22-T doubles as the Completion and the Final Delivery Report. If your project has non-infrastructure components, the NI and Combo Project Details Sheet(Word) must be submitted with the Completion and Final Delivery Report. If your project is a PLAN, the PLAN Project Details Sheet(Word) must be submitted with the Completion and Final Delivery Report.

  1. When submitting the Completion Report, check the Completion Report box, complete form, save, and submit.
  2. When submitting your Final Delivery Report, uncheck the Completion Report box, check the Final Delivery Report box, make updates, save, and submit.
