St. Mary’s College procurement policy provides for the pre-qualification of contractors for construction projects valued over $10,000.
For projects valued over $1,000,000 the College will advertise and pre-qualify contractors on a project-by-project basis.
For construction projects between $10,000 and $1,000,000, the College maintains an ongoing list of pre-qualified contractors.
In order to become eligible to bid on construction projects between $10,000 and $1,000,000, contractors must first become pre-qualified in accordance with the requirements of these instructions. Bids will be directly solicited only from pre-qualified firms.
In addition to General contractors, selected trades will also be required to pre-qualify for projects in which they will bid directly to the College as the prime contractor. Additionally, some projects may require selected subcontractor trades (who will bid to General Contractors) to pre-qualify.
In order to maintain an ongoing list of pre-qualified firms for Construction projects between $10,000 and $1,000,000, the College will make an announcement (yearly) soliciting Contractor Pre-Qualification Applications. While contractors may submit or update their application for evaluation at any time during the year, only firms which are pre-qualified at the beginning of the bidding period for any individual project will be invited to bid on that project as a prime contractor. No public announcement will be made for individual projects.
Trades for which pre-qualification is required to bid as a prime contractor include:
- Roofing (Slate)
- Roofing (other)
- Brick Pavers
