This free-to-all template is a supplement to DE1, part of CIBSE’s Digital Engineering Series, and is intended to help users put theory into practice. This template is in Microsoft Word format, but a Microsoft Excel version of DE1T is also available. 

DE1T: Pre-qualifcation Questionnaires Template is intended for those that generate, complete and review pre-qualification questionnaires. It is based on the questions shown in PAS 91:2013, and provides a template from which questionnaires can be formed. 
DE1T is not intended to be an exhaustive or definitive document and it will be necessary for users of the template to exercise their own professional judgement when deciding whether to abide by or depart from it.
The concept of a pre-qualification questionnaire is a buyer requesting information from potential suppliers for the purpose of evaluation and comparison. If this information is well structured, then it will be simpler for the buyer to compare suppliers.
This template may be used as the basis for a pre-qualification questionnaire for any type of construction project. It includes all questions shown in PAS 91:2013 and space to answer or link associated documents to.
The questions included here are suitable for general construction projects, public sector and defence or security projects. Not all tables provided are to be used for each of these project types.
