Volume 3: Prequalification System 

National Prequalification System for Civil (Road and Bridge) Construction Contracts

The National Prequalification System (NPS) consolidates all the various jurisdiction-specific prequalification schemes previously in place to create a seamless, harmonised framework for applications, assessments and reviews.

The main objectives of the National Prequalification System are to:

  • enable Participating Authorities to assess the capabilities of contractors and identify those with the requisite technical, managerial and financial capacity to efficiently deliver road and bridge construction contracts in accordance with their specific requirements
  • minimise the contractual risks associated with constructing roads and structures
  • minimise the costs of the tendering process for both Participating Authorities and industry
  • promote best practice in the road and bridge construction industry
  • ensure robust, consistent, transparent and objective processes across all Participating Authorities
