Think about the number of different prequalification systems and processes currently on the market. Some internal to organisations as part of a procurement process, some external and provided as a requirement to work in a particular industry. Remember when a prequalification was an expensive hygiene assessment of potential contractors before they came onto site to do work?
The prequalification concept has been tarnished over the years as various organisations developed processes that attempted to ascertain a good contractor from a bad one, purely based on the production of documentation and perhaps a little evidence, if you were lucky, perhaps you may even get a visit on-site from an assessor; however this was a rarity.

A single standard, not only across the New Zealand construction industry, but across all industries, backed by a data lake where Principals can access contractor prequalification assessments and pick appropriate contracting parties quickly, and efficiently. With the assurance that contractors have gone through a rigorous process aligned to an international prequalification standard PAS91 (read more here)
