How do I get set up as a vendor to receive payments from CDOT?

Once your company has received an award, CDOT requires certain forms to be completed and submitted in order to receive payments. Your business must be registered and in good standing with the Colorado Secretary of State (see link below).   To receive payments from CDOT, follow these steps:

  • Complete and return the W9 (only handwritten dates and signatures will be considered valid).  You may submit your standard W9 or use the Substitute W-9 in the link below.
  • Include a contact name, email address, and phone number in your request.
  • Send your completed forms with contact information to [email protected].
  • You will receive an email notification that your information has been accepted and your vendor account has been created.

How do I get paid by CDOT?

You may receive a check or electronic payments.  For check payments, you do not need to send additional information.  If you would like to receive electronic payments, follow these steps:

  • Complete and return the Electronic Payment General Authorization form (only handwritten dates and signatures will be considered valid) to [email protected]
  • Return a voided check or bank letter validating the bank routing and account number (required).
  • You will receive an email notification that your information has been accepted and your banking information has been updated.

How do I check payment status?

  • Subcontractors looking for payment status should check with the prime contractor they are working with.
  • CDOT Project Managers should have the status of payment information for CDOT related business.  Purchase orders have the contact name and information for the Program Managers and Purchasing Agents you may contact for payment status information.
