The alliance plans to submit the report to the Gauteng government review panel currently reviewing the project.
Last month, Gauteng Premier David Makhura unveiled plans to establish a panel to investigate the controversial project's impact on the province during his inaugural State of the Province Address (Sopa).
The panel will look at the socio-economic impact of the controversial system and its impact on residents and Gauteng at large.
Outa's Wayne Duvenage has urged businesses, organisations and faith-based groups to gather information from their members and submit their reports to the review panel.
"We have done extensive research and to fit in with their terms of reference and to give clarity as to how we see things, we will be providing a comprehensive report to them."
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters told Parliament on Friday that the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has a R1 billion bill as a result of motorists' refusal to pay their e-toll debt.
Since the multibillion rand project went online in December, a number of motorists have refused to pay their bills, with growing calls for civil disobedience.
Despite the massive debt incurred since the system's launch, no motorists have been prosecuted for non-payment.
