CRL Certified Payroll eLearning Courses
ODOT is pleased to introduce a set of FREE interactive eLearning courses for prime contractor and subcontractor personnel and anyone else who works with certified payrolls in AASHTOWare Project™ (AWP) Civil Rights and Labor (CRL). These eLearning courses were created by Infotech, the software contractor for the AWP software, and are hosted by Ohio LTAP. Since these are eLearning courses, you can take them (and retake them, if desired) at any time. These courses are valuable for those new to the software as well as experienced users who would like refresher training.
To take these eLearning courses, please go to eLearning | Ohio Department of Transportation. This page shows three steps to get started, but most CRL users should skip steps 1 and 2. Step 1 covers registering for MyODOT, but CRL users already have a MyODOT account. Step 2 covers exploring the eLearning course offerings, but the CRL course offerings are too new to be included in the catalog. So, skip to step 3: Go to the eLearning System Instructions and follow the directions to register for the CRL eLearning courses and begin your training.
For questions about or technical issues with course registration, please email LTAP@dot.ohio.gov for assistance.
Excel Template - For contractors without in-house payroll systems Ohio DOT is providing an Excel Template for entry of up to 50 employee payrolls. The Excel Workbook needs to be downloaded from this site to get started. Once populated users can keep payroll records by period and simply update the hours accordingly for subsequent pay periods.
Template Conversion Tool - Upon completion for a pay period users can convert the Ohio provided template to XML for upload into CRL. The XML conversion utillity is free to use and does not store any information. The site takes the Excel file, converts it and provides the correctly formatted XML file back to the contractor for upload into CRL.
Upon implementation, all Ohio DOT Construction Contracts will go through Ohio CRL System (date: projects sold after April 15, 2015). Requests for projects sold prior to this date should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The system manages Ohio DOT's Civil Right requirement and provides contractors electronic access to submit Certified Payrolls, Bidder/Quoter Information, and Prompt Payment Reports. It provides faster, easier and more accurate ways for contractors to meet government reporting requirements.
