Prequalification for Infrastructure and Transport

Prequalification is a system which ensures that only appropriately skilled and experienced companies are permitted to submit tenders to The Department in certain categories of contract.

To become prequalified, a company must demonstrate that they have the experience, technical capacity, available resources and management systems necessary to competently undertake the work. A company may apply for prequalification in any category at any time. Prequalification is available at various levels that reflect the complexity and value of contracts that a company will be permitted to tender for. When a contract is advertised, the Request for Tender will specify the level of prequalification required.

Prequalification does not replace effective post-tender assessment or sound contract management. It only represents a right to submit a tender or to be considered for a select tender list. For each tender assessment, The Department will take into account factors such as proposed methodology, resources allocated and past company performance when determining which company will be successful.

Prequalification at the higher level will automatically qualify a contractor to tender for work in a lower category. For contracts of high value or complexity, a preregistration process (ie seeking Expressions of Interest) instead of, or in addition to, prequalification may apply.

Note:

  • This prequalification system has been designed for DIT's own use under the supervision of experienced professionals. While other organisations may reference this prequalification system, The Department assumes no responsibility whatsoever to any other party in any matter associated with this prequalification system. DIT does not represent or warrant that any of the prequalified companies are technically capable or suitable for any non-DIT project.  Any organisation seeking to deal with prequalified companies must rely on its own enquiries and bears all risks associated with the use of this prequalification system.

  • If you reference this prequalification system for non-DIT projects, you are advised to undertake your own assessment of a company's financial stability.

Applications for prequalification should be sent to DIT.Prequal@sa.gov.au or if the application file size exceeds 10mb, saved onto a USB  memory device or CD (do not submit a paper copy) and either:

  • posted to GPO Box 1533, ADELAIDE  SA  5001; or
  • delivered to 77 Grenfell Street, ADELAIDE SA 5000.

Enquiries should be directed to DIT.Prequal@sa.gov.au or phone (08) 7109 7717.
