Only contractors who are registered as ‘prequalified’ by us may be eligible to tender for state highway contracts with us without having to go through the preliminary formalities every time.
The prequalification system is an acknowledgement of your qualifications and experience – and it simplifies the tendering process, saving time and effort in the tender process.
Prequalification is available for four categories (each with four levels):
The Transport Agency has made some changes to how we manage our prequalified contractors. We have established a business relationship with ISNetworld(external link) to help our company objectively manage contractor prequalification requirements. As a result, all our prequalified physical works contractors will be required to become subscribers to ISNetworld in order to be eligible to tender for Transport Agency contracts.
This new system allows us to streamline the way we collect, verify and manage supplier prequalification information. With the introduction of the new system, our objective is to allow you to join a pool of competent suppliers who share our values in keeping people safe and well. It will also help us to communicate with you more effectively, and efficiently manage documentation.
If your company is new to ISNetworld, there will be a nominal fee for your subscription, based on the size of your organisation. To find out more, you can call ISN on 0800 443 805 or visit their ISNetworld(external link) website. If your company is a current subscriber to ISNetworld, there is no additional fee.
Your company’s ISNetworld subscription will provide the Transport Agency access to the following required information:
