Pre-qualification is now an integral part of seeking new contracts and ensuring that those that are bidding for work are competent, capable and have the capacity to perform the tasks asked of them.

Traditionally, a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) was a bespoke form sent by the prospective Employer or their representative to the bidders. This takes time and resources to complete on a project by project basis, so PAS 91 was written to streamline this. The purpose of completing a PAS 91 compliant questionnaire is to compile all the data that is necessary to answer the relevant questions an Employer may ask. This is done once and once only, until the data needs to be revised, thus saving the bidding company time and money on future project bids.

This course is intended to help suppliers of Building Services and their prospective Employers to understand the process, what is relevant and what is not and how to write a questionnaire and how to answer it. This course should be read and completed in conjunction with the PAS and the CIBSE publication DE1 - Pre-qualification Questionnaires. Writing, responding to and general understanding of pre-qualification questionnaires.
