Bidder Pre-Qualification, Bid Responsiveness and Bidder Responsibility


Standardized pre-qualification forms and procedures apply a uniform system of rating bidders.

Many public works projects will have a bidder prequalification process. This is an objective way for a public agency to narrow down the field of qualified contractors. The purpose is to obtain experience and financial information from prospective bidders. There are standardized prequalification forms and procedures to apply a uniform system of rating bidders. This video reviews this process and also discusses bidder responsiveness and responsibility, and what public agencies may waive if there are deviations from the bid.
