Removing Unneccessary Reporting for Grant Recipients and Vendors
11
Charge Ahead Colorado grant recipients were previously required to create a monthly progress report, even when work did not occur. The program provides grants to install electric vehicle charging supply equipment (EVSE). As a condition of their purchase orders (PO), grantees were required to submit a written monthly progress report analyzing performance, which included a description of the deliverables and tasks completed during the monthly reporting period. As of March of 2016, CEO removed the monthly reporting requirement for vendors. Now vendors provide written communication to CEO only if the project experiences significant changes or delays in the schedule, and CEO runs an orientation for grantees to reduce questions on reimbursement.
