A Final Report is required for all projects. Forty-five days prior to the scheduled project completion date, the Industry and Research Partners will receive a notification from OCE's AccessOCE system to complete the Final Project Report, including Claims Report with detailed expenditures for reimbursement of eligible expenses. All required final reports by all partners must be submitted within 30 days of project end date in order to release the holdback and maintain good financial standing with OCE.
If an extension to complete the project is required, the Research Partner must request it prior to the scheduled project end date, using the Project Administration tab in their AccessOCE project file. A maximum extension of three months will be allowable for projects with duration of up to 12 months, and six months for projects with duration of 13 to 24 months.
