The Prequalification (PQC) system
The Prequalification (PQC) system applies for consultants where the work being undertaken is a government building project as defined under the Capital Works Management Framework.
Government departments use the PQC system to source building industry consultants where the consultancy fee is either greater than $60,000 or any amount with a service risk rating of 3 or 4.
On the Business Qld website there is further information including who can apply, application forms, and other resources and guidelines:
Additionally it is worth noting that registration with QBuild may also be required should they be the group managing the procurement of services.
QBuild is the leading provider of construction and strategic building maintenance services for Queensland Government.
QBuild needs contractors, consultants and suppliers who operate in these industries, particularly businesses in regional Queensland.
They consult the register of contractors, consultants and suppliers when we go to market via a select list invitation process. Therefore, registration gives you more access to tender opportunities.
Your registration remains active for 2 years. After 2 years, you need to re-apply with us to stay registered. Registration is free.
