Does my project need a Project Manager and Project Sponsor to approve status report before submitting to DPC?

The reporting coordinator needs to liaise OFFLINE with the project manager and project sponsor to receive all necessary approval for the project report to be submitted to DPC. After offline approval is received, the reporting coordinator will come back to the reporting system to perform all steps (internal review, approve internal review and submit) to submit the project to DPC

The project sponsor won’t have access to the reporting system.
