PQP Applicant Company Guidance

Publication type:Procurement

The Pre-Qualification Pack (PQP) Guidance is designed to guide applicant companies through the pre-qualification process, offering a detailed explanation of what information the Highways Agency (HA) needs, why we are collecting it and how it will be assessed.

The aim of the pack is to make the pre-qualification process as transparent, simple and consistent as possible.

This PQP has undergone some changes to adapt it to the mandated pre qualification documents set by BIS and OGC the same process still applies for Pre-Qualification, although some of the forms used have changed.

A consequential amendment has been made to Public Contracts Regulations 2006 Reg 26 – amending criteria for rejection of economic operators to include ‘bribery with meaning of section 1 or 6 of the Bribery Act 2010.
