To undertake Tasmanian government agency building construction and maintenance services valued at $100 000 or over, contractors must be prequalified.
Contractor registration is divided into two schemes.
For non-residential building with a construction cost estimate of $50 million and above, contractors should register for the National Prequalification System for Non-residential Building (NPS). Please refer to the Australian Procurement and Construction Council website at www.apcc.gov.au for information on the NPS.
For other building construction projects with an estimated maximum construction cost of $25 million, contractors should register with the Treasury Prequalification Scheme.
The following registration categories apply to the Treasury Prequalification Scheme:
- Building Works – Institutional
- Building Works – Residential
- Electrical Services
- Mechanical Services
- Fire Services
- Building Systems – Monitoring & Control
- Facilities Management and Maintenance
Contractors satisfying prequalification requirements become eligible to tender for works in their designated fields of expertise, up to a specified project cost.
A register of prequalified consultants is maintained by the Department of Treasury and Finance.
Consultants are registered in two areas:
- Strategic Services
- Strategic Asset Management
- Management of Projects
- Management of Maintenance
- Heritage Conservation Planning
- Project Services
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering Services
- Mechanical Engineering Services
