Prompt Payment to Subcontractors

Why It's Required

Per 49 CFR Part 26.29 and CDOT Specification 109.06(e) and (g), prime contractors must pay subcontractors and suppliers for all work which has been satisfactorily completed within seven calendar days after receiving payment for that work from the Department. Subcontractors are then required to pay lower tier subs within seven calendar days of receiving payment from the prime contractor.
