Section 3: Final Inspection of Federal-Aid Projects

Complete Form 2235, “Final Inspection of Federal-Aid Project,” and submit to the Financial Management Division (FIN) for all federal-aid projects, including PoDI and Design-Build (Public Private Partnership) projects. In particular, note nonparticipating costs, such as delays due to utility adjustments or non-participation change orders, on the form. Not completing the form within 60 days of the final contractor payment jeopardizes federal funds on the project. Below are the processing procedures for the Form 2235.
