All Sponsor Verification requests must be made in writing (see Sponsor Verification Request Form above). The form must be filled out and either faxed or mailed to the Division of Apprentice Standards (DAS). Requests must be made at least 7 to10 business days prior to the bid being due. There is a $50.00 fee for each verification. A check or money order made payable to the "Commonwealth of Massachusetts" should be mailed in with the request, or mailed on the day the request is faxed to DAS. If a company has an outstanding balance for previous verifications issued, no new verifications will be issued.
