What is the purpose of a Pre-Qualification?

Welcome to Facts on Friday. This week we share a post answering a question.

What is the purpose of a Pre-Qualification? Often referred to as a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ), it helps the client to select those best placed to bid and provides a short-list of potential suppliers. The short-listed suppliers would remain in the competition and qualify to proceed to the next stage and receive an Invitation to Tender (ITT).

PQQ’s often ask a range of questions and define criteria that will be required by the client.

Every PQQ tends to be bespoke, but typically you may be asked to provide/demonstrate: –

  • Company registration details and points of contact
  • Financial standing
  • Organisation size and structure
  • References detailing past and relevant experience
  • Certifications and accreditations that you hold
  • Insurance type and value of cover
  • Values, social, corporate responsibility, and accountability
