OPP1 (awarded September 29, 2010)

Oil Payment Program Online (OPPO) Application Access

The instructions below are provided for information purposes only. The application deadline for this cycle was June 30, 2010.

The OPPO system will operate similar to the online Block Grant Reporting (BGR) system in several ways:

  1. First-time users must obtain a CalRecycle WebPass. Note: Those who previously obtained a WebPass for a CalRecycle system (i.e., Local Government Information Center (LoGIC), E-Waste, BGR, etc.) do not need to obtain a new WebPass.
  2. Requires first-time users to also request "access" to the system by sending an e-mail to after obtaining their WebPass. (Note: Those who previously obtained access to the BGR system, automatically have access to this online application process.)
  3. The OPPO system has been developed with the use of subject "tabs" in the online document.
  4. The new OPPO application process involves online development and submission of the application. Upon completion of the application, applicants must print out the summary page of the application for signature by the Signature Authority (as identified in applicant’s Resolution/Letter of Commitment). A copy of the signed summary page is to be uploaded to the application system (by the applicant) and the document with original signature is to be retained in the applicant’s cycle file. Specific instructions are provided when you actually begin the application process.

The information on this web page specifies steps for applicants to begin the application process:

Existing grantees/BGR users with current access to the BGR system automatically have access to the new OPPO system and can proceed to Step "A." below. (Note: The OPPO system is targeted for availability the first week of June 2010.)

New applicants or prior/current grantees who are new system users will need to obtain required login information/processes that may require a little more time than those local governments/jurisdictions already participating in the BGR system. Please follow the steps presented in "B" below to obtain a WebPass and access to the secure online application system:

To begin the OPPO application process:

A. My organization is a current grantee and I have access to the BGR system.

B. If your organization is a new applicant (not currently a Used Oil Block Grant grantee or OPP recipient) or does not have access to the BGR system, you need to complete Steps 1 and 2 below:

Step 1: Access to OPPO is secured, so you will first need to create a WebPass account. WebPass accounts are created for individuals, not organizations, and will be tied to your specific email address. If you change your email address or it becomes inactive, you will need to create a new WebPass account to continue accessing OPPO. Please make certain all individuals obtain their own password and do not share passwords within your organization. Users with WebPass accounts will be able to receive important email updates. Once you are at the WebPass page, select the "Create Account" link and follow the directions. An e-mail will be sent to you stating that account activation is pending. (Note: The process for obtaining this WebPass is time-sensitive and needs to be followed as directed by e-mails to the requestor or the process will have to be restarted.) Follow the directions in the e-mail from the CalRecycle WebPass Account Manager to request account activation. You will receive a second e-mail when your WebPass account is activated. After receiving this second notice, go to Step 2 below.

Step 2: After you receive notice that your WebPass is activated, you will need to request access to the secure OPPO system address in order to use this online system. Requests for access to this system can be obtained by sending an e-mail to: requesting access to the OPPO system. After you submit the request for access, you will be sent an e-mail letting you know when you have been granted access and providing you the secure Web site for entry into the online application process.

If you have questions, please contact your Program Advisor (formerly referred to as your Grant Manager).
