Approval of funds in Federal Authorization (FMIS) is the federal authorization for the use of federal-aid on a specific project phase. FMIS authorization is not just an authorization for the use of federal-aid funds, but also an authorization of the project phase.
Prior to the start of work on each phase (PE, R/W, CN) of the project, the phase must be authorized and approved in the federalFMIS database.
Below are instructions to submit a FMIS request to INDOT. The purpose of INDOT creating the Request for Federal Authorization (FMIS) and Project End Date template is to keep your LPA in compliance with funding procedures set forth by the Federal Office of Inspector General (OIG).
