For State projects in Connecticut, do Material Suppliers need to send a preliminary to the Hiring Party (General Contractor)?
We currently are a Material Supplier sending Solar Panels to a State/County project in the State of Connecticut, and we are being hired by a General Contractor. Do we need to send a preliminary notice to the General Contractor?
I see on the Preliminary Notice section that it states “Suppliers Must Send Notice If Unpaid” and gives a 30 day time limit. I was hoping you can clarify what it means “Parties who remain unpaid 30 days after their hiring party is paid for the work the claimant provided must provide notice to the hiring party in order to gain protections.” I’m just looking for clarification. Do you know how we confirm that the hiring party has been paid? From what I understand, once the General Contractor is paid, we only have 30 days from that date of payment to send a preliminary notice. Is that correct?
