What is a Statutory Declaration of Progress Payment Distribution?
A Statutory Declaration of Progress Payment Distribution by Contractor is a sworn statement for use by a contractor or subcontractor as a condition of receiving payment for either the second and subsequent applications for progress payment or the release of holdback funds. A contractor or subcontractor declares that all amounts payable by them as a result of their receipt of a specified progress payment have been made.
The statutory declaration is available in two formats: CCDC 9A for prime contractors; and CCDC 9B for subcontractors.
