Subcontractor & Supplier Compliance

Learn the differences between subcontractors & suppliers (Form 205 & Form 1425).

Where can I find CDOT's most recent subletting & supplier specifications? 

What is subletting?

  • Subletting is basically a synonym for "subcontracting"; it refers to the transfer of certain contract responsibilities to another entity, such as when a prime contractor subcontracts a portion of the work to another contractor or supplier.,

Is there any guidance about subcontractors vs. suppliers? 

Form 205

Contractors must submit Form 205 (Excel document) for every subcontractor on a job, and a Form 1425 (Excel document) for every supplier. 
  • Form 205s communicate to your Project Engineer and Region Civil Rights Office the list of companies with whom the prime intends to enter into subcontracts to deliver the project. You must submit an updated 205 to your CDOT Engineer every time you bring a new subcontractor on to the project. Please remember that the Prime must perform at least 30% of the work with their own forces.

Form 1425

Form 1425 - Supplier List (Excel document) is required for all suppliers you intend to use on the project for $10,000 or more.
