Small and medium firms set to benefit from common prequalification standard

Business standards company BSI has this week unveiled new documents to standardise prequalification questionnaires aimed at helping smaller firms.

The new edition Construction Prequalification Questionnaires now replaces PAS 91: 2010 - Construction related procurement - Prequalification questionnaires.

It has been designed to closely align public and defence procurement policy and is hoped to open more opportunities for small and medium sized organisations though reducing the amount of information asked.

It also includes optional questions for Building Information Modelling (Bim).

“The revision takes a further step towards greater efficiency in prequalification and will have a significant effect on the effectiveness of the process as well as reducing the demand on resources for both buyers and suppliers,” said BSI head of construction standards Jonathan Griffin.

“Additionally it also assists companies to be ready for the introduction of BIM and brings construction industry protocols right up to date.”

Further updates from BSI
