Why do I have to prequalify?

Prequalification helps us better understand your business so that you get invited to bid work that is well suited to your firm’s operational capabilities and capacity. It also protects the procurement process and our bidders by ensuring all bids are evaluated against qualified and well-equipped sources.

As a result of our prequalification process, you can look forward to working alongside other safe, reliable and professional trade partners when you win work with us.
