Prequalification of building suppliers

The Prequalification (PQC) System is the whole-of-Government central register of prequalified building consultants and contractors.

It provides guidelines to agencies for the selection of all building industry service providers and aims to:

  • streamline the tendering process
  • reduce costs of tendering for both the client and the consultant or contractor 
  • match consultant and contractor capabilities with the service required
  • reinforce security of payment on government building projects.

Prequalification requirements

All building consultants who are directly commissioned on government building projects will need to apply for prequalification if:

  • the commission fee exceeds $30,000
  • the services risk rating is 3 or 4.

All building contractors who are directly contracted on government building projects will need to apply for prequalification if:

  • the project is valued at more than $500,000.

Key trade or specialist subcontractors can be registered under contractors in the PQC System. You will need to apply for prequalification if the work exceeds $500,000.
