This option allows the user to enter information for a project that was begun in a previous year without having to re-enter all the project information. When this option is selected, a project search form appears that allows you to select projects based on the criteria entered. Not all the fields are required; search criteria can be as minimal as the year or one of the Project IDs. Once the search criteria for the project are entered, click the Get Projects button. [Note: to search on partial project titles, put an asterisk (*) immediately after the words entered.]
A screen with the search results will appear. In this example, the search criteria were "2000" and "California"
To select a project from the list, click on the CMAQ Project ID link in the left column. The CMAQ Project ID is a unique number assigned by the system when the project is first entered. When funding and benefits information is entered in subsequent years, this number does not change.
Once you click on the CMAQ Project ID, the Enter Project Information screen will appear again with options to enter funding information and emissions benefits by fiscal year, and re-save.
Only enter benefits if your projection of the benefits has changed since the previous entry in the system. If no benefits are entered the system will report "PR" (previously reported) in the Detailed Project Listing report. If different benefits are entered, the Detailed Project Listing report will list the difference in the year for which you change the benefits. (The system does not go back and adjust benefits reported in previous years.)
Enter information on the CMAQ funds and the total project amount for this fiscal year.
