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: To register, visit:

  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. Quarterly and Progress Reports
  6. The PI agrees to submit brief progress reports each quarter for the research project until the project is completed. Quarterly reports must be submitted online by the same user who submitted the initial project proposal. For a list of required content and instructions on how to submit quarterly reports, review the Quarterly Reports document found in the column on the left under “Reporting Information”.

    The PI agrees to submit a brief summary draft of the final report by 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.

    In compliance with the UTC grant deliverables, MATC is required to collect performance metrics from our partner institutions on the following categories: Research, Leadership, Education & Workforce Development, Technology Transfer, and Collaboration. These metrics are outlined in the MATC Specific Reporting Requirements, which are summarized from the Grant Deliverables Requirements for 2016 University Transportation Centers. Performance metrics will be collected biannually via email.

    Failure to submit quarterly reports, performance metrics, 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 quarterly reports, 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
  10. The PI agrees to provide MATC with copies of all papers and reports produced with USDOT/MATC funding, including items based on the work that is completed after the grant has ended.
