All Highway/Transportation departments have funding issues, especially in this era of state and national deficits and a total lack of interest in raising taxes or finding serious alternative funding sources for highway infrastructure. SCDOT is no different. Our funds are entirely based on state and federal motor fuel taxes. This situation requires us to manage cash flow very carefully. We strive to pay proper invoices within thirty business days. In addition, the agency has established a goal and is working towards paying our commercial partners within 30 calendar days.
SCDOT processes vendor and contractor invoices within the time frame outlined above. The PDF below contains the latest construction contract file numbers that have been submitted to the Comptroller General for payment processing at this time.
