Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ)
A Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) is commonly used for large contracts.
It is a questionnaire assessing the suitability of the organisations commercial, technical and financial capabilities and provides a method of shortlisting interested parties meeting the required minimum qualification criteria. This aids the contracting authority in controlling the cost of the tendering process.
Shortlisted companies will then be invited to tender.
A Pre-qualification Questionnaire typically includes:
Financial statements may be required as part of the tender submission where there may be a risk to the County Council.
Equal Opportunities/Health and Safety questionnaire should be completed and policy submitted for evaluation.
Environmental questionnaire which asks about the environmental practice used and copies of the environmental policy submitted for evaluation.
