Prompt Payment

Prompt payment is the principle that all members of a construction team are entitled to prompt payment for work properly performed. CDOT is committed to this principle for all subcontractors and has implemented B2GNow, a compliance software system, to monitor prompt payment across all of our contracts.

Prompt payment requirements are outlined in the DBE Special Provision. Contractors must log into B2GNow on a monthly basis to report their payments to subcontractors during the prior audit period, and subcontractors must then log into B2GNow to confirm that they did indeed receive the amount reported by their prime.

Prime contractors are required to report sub payment within 7 days of receipt of payment from CDOT, and subcontractors must confirm payment within 15 days of receiving system notification. Failure to do so waives the contractor's right to CDOT involvement in the dispute.

ANY AND ALL payment discrepancies should be reported through B2GNow. For help with the prompt payment discrepancy reporting process, please contact Erica Downey, Compliance Systems Specialist, at [email protected] or (303) 512-4144.

Release of Retainage

Prime contractors are obligated to release retainage to subcontractors if the work committed on the Form 205  has been 'satisfactorily completed.'
