Passed in 2010, the Massachusetts Prompt Pay Statute imposed specific requirements on owners, contractors and subcontractors of private projects over $3M with regard to submitting, processing and approving requests for payment and change orders. A recent decision by the Massachusetts Superior Court entitled, Tocci v. IRIV Partners, LLC, et. al. has confirmed that Massachusetts Courts intend to strictly construe the Statute’s terms. In Tocci, the Court ordered the owner to pay the contractor disputed monies simply because the owner failed to timely and properly object to the contractor’s invoices. This decision will have serious and far reaching implications in the way large private construction projects in Massachusetts will be managed. Attend this presentation to hear more about the rationale supporting the decision, lessons learned, and what the Statute requires for design professional who process pay requisitions and change orders on behalf of their private clients.
