Prequalification System Overview

The National Prequalification System for Civil (Road and Bridge) Construction Contracts is administered by the state and territory road agencies.

The prequalification system classifies contractors who wish to tender for road and bridge construction contracts. The classification is based on the contractor's technical and managerial expertise, financial capacity and previous performance. The scheme is locally administered by the state and territory road agencies. 

There is no "central" body that manages the prequalification process. Rather, contractors seeking to prequalify under the system must apply directly with the participating agency of their choice. Once prequalified, eligible contractors may seek to have their prequalification status recognised by other participating agencies - subject to certain restrictions and conditions.

The system is documented in the 2016 Guidelines: National Prequalification System for Civil (Road and Bridge) Construction.

This website details the prequalification categories and levels, and the process of  seeking prequalification. It also hosts a list of prequalified contractors
