Are you battling for tenders in your industry? If you’ve already achieved SSIP accreditation, then there’s more you can do to stand out from the competition and show that you’re compliant in other areas as well as Health & Safety — complete a PQQ.

But what does PQQ mean? Well, we’re here to explain the ins and outs of it all.

What is a PQQ?

PQQ stands for Pre-Qualification Questionnaire. So, what is a PQQ document? It’s a list of questions that clients give to contractors before hiring them, which is used to check if the contractors are compliant in areas like environmental and quality management. The topics that are usually covered in a PQQ include:

  • Health & safety
  • Environment
  • Quality assurance
  • Finance
  • GDPR
  • Anti-bribery
  • Modern slavery
  • Right to work
  • Equality

What’s the role of a PQQ in a tendering process?

PQQ is often the first stage of the tendering process. It’s super important that businesses like yours are ready for the questionnaire and that you have all the right policies and procedures in place to help you pass!

If your business meets the standards required by clients, then it’s a big win for you. You’ll have a greater chance of winning tenders and progressing through to the further stages!

With Worksafe PQQ, you’re able to demonstrate compliance with the PAS 91 framework.
