A goal of the ProQual Elite Network is to help eliminate subcontractors having to constantly fill out multiple prequalification documents for Prime Contractors and Builders. By being a ProQual Elite Network Member, you will provide the information that will encompass a basic level of prequalification that most Prime Contractors and Builders would be requesting. If an “Network Access Member” Prime Contractor or Builder wants additional information on your firm, you may be sent a supplemental online or physical document to fill out in order to collect the missing information or documents requested by the Network Access Member firm; however it is still up to the discretion of each Prime Contractor and Builder.
ProQual understands there are many available options on the market for bidding software. For this reason, the ProQual Elite Verified Network will not be tied to any specific platform. Regardless of which software the “Network Access Member” Prime Contractor or Builder uses, your information can still be accessed.
A ProQual representative will send additional communication to your main contact, when further information is requested on your firm by a Prime Contractor or Builder “Network Access Member”. Your firm may be asked to provide additional documentation at that time, which is up to your discretion to provide.
No. Only Elite “Network Access Members”; or those that do business as Prime Contractors or Builders will have access to the weekly reports and have the ability to have website database login access for more detailed viewing of your firm’s information.
