SFR training information


The Iowa Department of Transportation invites any city personnel to attend classes related to processing of the Street Financial Report (SFR). It has been requested that a beginner training class be held in addition to the update class for SFR.

The beginner class session will involve all of the steps to complete the SFR from beginning to submitting the report. This class will be held at each of the listed locations with registration at 8:45 a.m. and class starting at 9 a.m. and continuing until 4 p.m. Lunch is not provided.

Experienced users are invited to join the beginners for the afternoon session. Registration starts at 12:45 p.m. with the afternoon class session starting at 1 p.m. and continuing until 4 p.m. The afternoon class time will cover the SFR; instructions, forms, and electronic reporting process.

These classes will be a great opportunity for individuals who would like to be familiar with the process, have questions, or are unclear in understanding information on the forms. The goal is to cover the following:
  • Filling out the SFR form (this will include some exercises, so it may be helpful to bring a pencil and calculator)
  • Electronic process
  • Trouble areas
  • Question and answer session
These classes are eligible to be used toward your finance credits. There will be no fee for attending any of the classes. The dates and locations for each of the classes are found below. The same information will be covered at each location.
