Reporting Requirements

  1. ORCID
  2. In accordance with the US DOT’s reporting requirements for 2016 University Transportation Centers, each MATC researcher must obtain a unique ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) identification. All project researchers will be expected to provide an ORCID on the documentation page of their final research report. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes. If other researchers are added to a research project after the start date, they also must obtain an ORCID. Further information about ORCID can be found at: https://ntl.bts.gov/publicaccess/ORCID.html. To register, visit: https://orcid.org/register.

  3. Data Management Plan
  4. Principal Investigators are required to develop a Data Management Plan for individual research projects in accordance with the values and processes outlined in MATC’s DMP.

  5. Progress Reports
  6. The PI agrees to submit brief progress reports each quarter for the research project until the project is completed. The due dates for the quarterly reports are: October 30, January 30, April 30, and July 30. Reporting requirements can be found in MATC Specific Reporting Requirements, summarized from the Grant Deliverables Requirements for 2016 University Transportation Centers. Both documents can be found in the Reporting Information box at the bottom of the left column.

    The PI agrees to submit a brief draft final summary report on the project completion date, which will be uploaded to the website. A revised final report must be uploaded to the website within thirty (30) days of the project completion date. Report templates can be found on the left column of the page under the Reporting Information and Education & Tech Transfer headings.

    Failure to submit quarterly progress, a final summary and/or financial report(s), and/or answer any grant-related questions by the MATC Director or MATC Program Coordinator can result in all grant activities at partner universities being suspended.

  7. Financial Reporting/Invoicing
  8. In conjunction with the submission of the quarterly progress report the Office of Sponsored Programs/Office of Research must also provide a financial report and detailed supporting financial documentation for expenses incurred. The MATC Matching Funds and Federal Funds templates are available under Reporting Information on this page and under the Invoices tab that appears on the left side of the page when logged onto the Proposal Submission System.

  9. Papers and Reports produced with MATC Support
