Pre-Qualification Questionnaires

When your business tenders for contracts, a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) is the documentation needed to prove to clients that you can deliver and meet compliance requirements.

As tendering is highly competitive, we’re here to help you stay ahead of the rest with our bespoke package for businesses. Upgrade your existing SSIP accreditation to cover more than just Health & Safety with Smas. We’ll help you raise your profile to clients and stand out from the competition.

What are PQQs?

Across industries such as manufacturing, technology, construction and logistics, pre-qualification questionnaires are used to shortlist potential candidates when buyers assess the response given in a PQQ. A tender for PQQs is a process where suppliers for a service are invited to tender for work. Getting it right is what matters most, as this is the first point of consideration before the negotiation phase starts.

But, with our support, we’ll help you fill out your pre-qualification questionnaire properly, making sure you hit all the right notes to win more work and grow your business.

Tailored support for PQQs in construction

We work alongside many construction companies to help streamline the pre-qualification questionnaire process. The PQQ for construction is the PAS 91 questionnaire, which recognises other construction accreditations and reduces the amount of time you have to spend on your answers. These certifications can also then be used as evidence of your capability for jobs during the tendering process.

Our PQQ package offers guidance and support to help you meet PAS 91 standards. Plus, we offer suppliers a pre-qualification questionnaire template for contractors with our supply chain management service. Call 01752 280153 to discuss your options today.
