NPS: Non-residential buildings

National Prequalification System for Non-residential Building

The National Prequalification System (NPS) applies to SA Government non-residential building contracts where the estimated construction cost is $50 million and over.

The NPS was developed by the Australasian Procurement and Construction Council (APCC) in conjunction with State and Territory jurisdictions as part of a Council of Australian Governments initiative.  The objectives of the NPS are to harmonise the prequalification systems of jurisdictions across Australia and avoid duplication of effort by contractors and jurisdictions by providing for mutual recognition of contractor prequalification.

Details of the NPS are available from the APCC Website.

Contractors with their head office in South Australia seeking prequalification under the NPS must apply to DIT. NPS: Non-Residential buildings to download the Application Form.

Contractors prequalified under other jurisdictions may apply to have their NPS Prequalification recognised  by DIT by forwarding a Registration for Mutual Recognition Form to DIT.
