Revisions to Form DC-74A Submission Requirements

 

In a continued effort to become paperless, Construction Services will now only accept e-mail submissions of the Form DC-74A. Please refer to the following rules regarding the online submission of the Form DC-74A:

  • Please submit the application as one (1) PDF file. This PDF shall include the Form DC-74A as well as any and all attachments (cover letter, registrations, certifications, resumes, schedules, financial statements, etc.).
  • Please name the PDF file as well as the email subject title with the following naming convention: DC74A ContractorName FinancialStatementDate (e.g. “DC74A ABC Contractors 12-31-2021”).
  • Please email all Form DC-74A submissions to CSPD@dot.nj.govDo not email or copy any other individual or entity within NJDOT.

Construction Services does not have the capability to receive online payments at this time. Therefore, Construction Services asks that checks be mailed to the address listed above. Please note the following regarding the receipt of checks by mail:

  • To ensure your firm's application has been received, please include a printed copy of the email sent to CSPD@dot.nj.gov containing the application along with the check.
  • Please note that per regulation, the Department is unable to process or review the submitted Form DC-74A until payment has been received. Payment is to be treated as additional information received by the Department, and effective dates of an approved application will be based on the date of receipt of the check (or additional information, whichever is later).

Beginning January 1, 2022, paper applications will no longer be accepted by the Department. Any Form DC-74A received by mail on or after that date will be returned to the contractor.

 

Revisions to Form DC-74A Effective September 2021

 

The Bureau of Construction Services is pleased to announce a revision to the Form DC-74A, effective September 2021. The following details the changes made from the previous revision of the form:

  • Page 1 has been revised to additionally include the following:
    • Lines for both physical and mailing addresses.
    • Headings within the sections for partnerships/limited liability companies/corporations have been updated to specifically request legal names and physical addresses of the individuals listed. Nicknames are not to be provided. Legal names provided should match that of a legally issued ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.).
  • The Contracts on Hand Schedule is no longer required and has been removed.
  • The Construction Equipment Schedule has been modified, and long-term loan balances have been separated and featured on their own schedule. Long-term loan balance information is to now include the current portion, net of current portion, and total balance for each piece of equipment listed on the Construction Equipment Schedule. If equipment is listed on the Construction Equipment Schedule, the equipment must be listed on the Long-Term Loan Balances Schedule. If long-term loan balances for equipment are $0, they must be indicated as such. No financial credit towards construction equipment will be allowed by the Department if the Construction Equipment Schedule is provided, but the Long-Term Loan Balances Schedule is not provided. Reason: Pursuant to regulation, the current portion of long-term loan balances is already factored into a contractor’s financial capability calculation (net working capital). By separating the current portion and net of current portion amounts, the Department will potentially be able to award contractors a higher dollar value for construction equipment, and thus a greater financial capability.
  • Minor changes have been made to the Line of Credit letter.
  • The Past Performance History Schedule has been modified to allow contractors more space to enter appropriate information. Though fewer projects can be listed on one page, the page allows contractors to provide more detailed information.
  • The Department has lost its ability to include a button to “Add Pages” for its several schedules. Therefore, the Department has added these schedules as separate pages for download on its Prequalification webpage on the Department’s website. Alternatively, contractors may continue to attach their own schedules in lieu of utilizing the Department’s schedules, given those attachments include all information requested by the Department.
  • The Form DC-74A has been revised to allow for electronic signature by company officials. Furthermore, the Department no longer requires the raised, corporate seal on the Affidavit.

Beginning January 1, 2022, the Department will no longer accept any version of the Form DC-74A other than the version revised as of September 2021. Any other version of the Form DC-74A submitted will be returned and will not be processed.
