QUARTERLY PROGRESS REPORTS (QPRs)

Each project requires the submittal of a QPR unless otherwise approved.

QPR periods are defined as:

  • First quarter (Jan. 1 – March 31)
  • Second quarter (April 1 – June 30)
  • Third quarter (July 1 – Sept. 30)
  • Fourth quarter (Oct. 1 – Dec. 31)

Current QPRs are required for all projects before payment can be made for costs incurred. The first day of work within the contract period defines the first quarter in which a QPR is to be submitted. (Example: for projects beginning July 1, the first QPR submitted would cover the third quarter.) QPRs are required until all deliverables are submitted and the project has closed.

General Research projects

QPRs for general research projects are due within 30 calendar days of the end of the quarter.

A fillable PDF form is provided for the first QPR submittal.
(The Research Quarterly Progress Report will be saved to your computer. To complete the report, open the PDF from its folder location and select the PDF reader you want to use. )

Subsequent submittals are encouraged to reuse the previous quarter’s report as each quarter expands the previous quarter’s work.

Submit QPRs as a .pdf attachment to QPR.Research@iowadot.us using the following naming convention.

  • Attached file name: ProjectNumber_YYYY_Q#.pdf (example: 17-SPR0-013_2018_Q3.pdf)
