Our Prequalification Scheme (PQS) allows us to efficiently and effectively engage contractors to carry out work in specific work categories without the need for a standard tender process for each engagement. The benefits for both the supplier and us include simplified terms and conditions, no lock in contracts, flexibility of accepting / rejecting work and streamlined competitive tendering processes.

The work categories available under the scheme cover:

  • Construction Services (1010)
  • Distribution Network Services (1020)
  • Engineering Services (4001)
  • Major Projects Design & Construction Services (1030)
  • Plant & Equipment Hire (2000)
  • Professional Services (4000)

Overview of the scheme

To determine suitability for the scheme, suppliers are assessed on the following criteria:

  • Capability and availability of resources
  • Financial capacity and stability
  • Licencing & Insurance
  • Key personnel and qualifications
  • Management, safety and quality systems
  • Previous experience

Once approved, a prequalification status is valid for five years (this can be reviewed at any time). After which a supplier is invited to renew their prequalification status. Prequalification is not a guarantee that we'll procure any goods, services or works from a supplier.
