End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


All DOT contracts will contain (FAR) 48 CFR 52.232-33, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer—Central Contractor Registration in lieu of (FAR) 48 CFR 52.232-34, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer—Other than Central Contractor Registration and 52.232-35, Designation of Office for Government Receipt of Electronic Funds Transfer Information. This means contractors receiving payments under DOT contracts, purchase orders, delivery orders, or other contractual vehicles must be registered in the CCR. The EFT information in the CCR must be accurate in order for contractors' invoices or contract financing requests to be considered proper invoices for the purpose of prompt payment under DOT contracts. Current and prospective contractors are encouraged to register in the CCR without delay. By registering, the paperwork burden imposed by (FAR) 48 CFR 52.232-34 and (FAR) 48 CFR 52.232-35 will no longer exist. In lieu thereof, contractors will update their EFT information electronically through the CCR.
