Please note that any classifications currently expiring on or after July 1, 2020, this extension/waiver shall have no effect absent further extension/waiver by the Commissioner.


During this time, the Department and Bureau of Construction Services will continue to receive requests for renewals of classification (completed Form DC-74A) in a normal and regular capacity. All renewals received will be reviewed and processed in a consistent, efficient, and timely manner, and will be in full accordance with N.J.A.C. 16:44-3. If your firm has already submitted a completed Form DC-74A necessary for renewal of classification, no further action is required unless the Bureau otherwise requires as such. If your firm has not but wishes to renew its classification, your firm must complete and submit the Department’s Form DC-74A. The Form DC-74A may be found on our prequalification page located here.
