Perform Subcontracting Work

MoDOT is required to pre-qualify prime contractors as outlined in 7 CSR 10-15Therefore, a contractor that is an approved MoDOT prime contractor is also qualified to work as a subcontractor.

MoDOT maintains a listing of subcontractors that are approved for use on Commission contracts as a convenience to the contracting community.  Please see the approved list of subcontractors at this page:
