CDOT Completes Successful Pilot of Online System for Certified Payrolls

19-Aug-2016 to 19-Aug-2016

CDOT recently completed a successful pilot of LCPtracker, the program selected by CDOT to manage and track certified payrolls. Although there were challenges along the way, CDOT and the pilot group of prime contractors, subcontractors, and other project personnel were able to learn about and work within the system. Users were able to enter certified payroll information and the system performed a variety of validation checks to ensure the data was entered correctly. 

It has taken a while for CDOT to execute an electronic payroll system, but it is something that has been much desired, as payrolls can be quite complicated. The pilot focused on testing the integration of and compliance with state and federal laws, entering use cases for both prime contractors and subcontractors, and ensuring current procedures are accommodated in the new structure. Through hard work and dedication by all of those involved, CDOT is now ready to move to the next phase of implementation. 

CDOT will reevaluate and make minor modifications based upon the pilot. The goal is to implement the new system on all projects after the end of the year. Currently, contractors on projects that are involved with LCPtracker will continue to turn in payrolls electronically, just as they have for the past few weeks. At a later date, LCPtracker will move the data from the pilot environment to a more permanent database. This will be a seamless transition for both CDOT and contractors. A new specification and construction bulletin will be released later this fall that will outline the use of  LCPtracker and associated processes. More information and training will be coming this fall.
