Each month I try to attend the monthly board meetings of the Board of Technical Registration. I have noticed that in the past several months architectural and engineering firms have had disciplinary action taken against them regarding the prompt pay law that was passed several years ago. So, I wanted to remind all of you what the current law says about paying your consultants.

21-128 C 5. Failing to pay a collaborating registered professional within seven calendar days after the registrant receives payment from a client unless specified otherwise contractually between the prime professional and the collaborating registered professional. For the purposes of this paragraph “collaborating registered professional” means a registered professional with whom the prime professional has a contract to perform professional services.

I know that Chip Shay, AIA, Board Chair will elaborate more on this in an upcoming issue of the BTR newsletter, but I wanted to remind you of this statute.
