AASHTOWare Civil Rights & Labor (CRL) Electronic Payroll Compliance

AASHTOWare CRL is a web-based system that accepts contractor and subcontractor required certified payroll information for verifying compliance with federal and state laws and regulations. The system processes contractors’ payrolls against the appropriate wage decision allowing for increased accuracy and timeliness.

AASHTOWare CRL software can import data from an XML file, eliminating the need to manually key it in.

Although users can manually enter the data into the system, there can be quite a lot of it, and many firms use software systems that contain most or all of what is needed already.

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is transitioning to AASHTOWare CRL from the hard copy paper process. Contracts will have a Special Provision if the new system applies.
