Default foundation wall sealant

I am in the beginning phase of finishing my basement, and I plan on using the kilz sealant on my foundation prior to starting. My question comes that I have a radon system and per code I need to use a polyurethane caulk between my foundation wall and slab. Should I caulk before I use the kilz or should I seal the wall and then caulk?

Does Kilz stick to your selected [paintable] cured caulk, or vice versa?
