  • What is a PQQ - Pre Qualification Questionnaire   A (PQQ) is normally issued by the contracting authority when they require contractors to supply goods / products or services - It is one of the main documents that must be completed correctly and must be returned to the contracting authority by the specified date if the contractor wishes to be included in the tendering process and hope to win the contract.   This form is normally completed and certified as being accurate by one of the company's directors (preferably the Finance Director or, in the case of a partnership, a senior or controlling partner.)   The form normally requests generic company information, project specific prequalification detail will be requested separately at the appropriate time. It is anticipated that for certain tender exercises a director of the company may be required to confirm the accuracy of the information at the given time.   The completion of a PQQ form does not commit the contract provider in any way nor is it intended to circumvent any legal requirements under EC Procurement Directives or UK Competition rules. The contracting authority is at liberty to confirm any details entered on to the form and may request an audit of the details giving reasonable notice.   The completed document may be provided either in hard copy or electronic format.

Understanding Pre Qualification Questionnaires Presentation Transcript

  • 1. UNDERSTANDING PRE-QUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRES All public procurement activity is based on (EU / UK) directives as described in the diagram above.
  • 2. This tutorial consists of a standard generic (PQQ) prequalification form, it’s objectives are to enable companies to practice providing their generic prequalification details. An Official (PQQ) form should be completed and certified as being accurate by one of the company's directors, i.e.: (the finance director, in the case of a partnership, a senior or controlling partner, or managing director). The completion of an (Official PQQ Form) does not commit the Issuing Authority in any way nor is it intended to circumvent any legal requirements required under EU Procurement Directives or Competition rules. The Issuing Authority is required to be able to confirm any details entered on to the form and may request an audit of the detail giving reasonable notice. The form only requests generic company information, project specific prequalification details will be requested separately at the appropriate time. It is anticipated that for certain procurement exercises a director of the company may be required to confirm the accuracy of the information at the given time.
  • 3. The completed document may be provided either in hard copy or electronic format. All requests for clarification or further information in respect of a PQQ should be addressed to the named contact point. No approach of any kind in connection with the PQQ should be made to any other person within, or associated with the Issuing Authority. The PQQ forms the first part of the process. The second part of the process is for project-specific requirements. Respondents must adhere to the format of the PQQ when answering the questions. Where questions cannot be fully answered, please provide relevant explanation and details. Respondents are required to sign a declaration as follows: [I, the undersigned, confirm that the information contained in this PQQ response is correct at the time of completion. Any changes relevant to this requirement will be notified to the Issuing Authority contact concerned without undue delay.] [ If you are completing the form electronically, your submission will indicate your acceptance of terms provided by the (Issuing Authority) which may include the above and other statements .]
  • 4. Generic Pre-Qualification Questionnaire - Guidance Notes: The Procurement Team A team of procurement professionals support Local County Council's purchasing activity from the strategic planning stage, from the award of the contract thorough to follow up with contract management during the life of the contract. The aim is to work in partnership with suppliers and contractors to achieve the goals set out by the public authority. Rules and Regulations As a UK public Agency there are regulations at a European, national, and local level that have to be complied with. The Procurement Team is made up of a network of specialist procurement professionals, led by Senior Category Managers working alongside the public facing services they support. The Team is responsible for the public sector agency's procurement strategy and policies and provides a consultancy service for major procurement projects. It also provides a helpdesk and is responsible for negotiating and managing many central call-off contracts for key products and services that are for use throughout the UK. A guide to these follows. It is important to note that where there is conflict between a European, national, and local council rules, it is the European directives that must be followed.
  • 5. Guidance Notes: EU Directives on Public Procurement Contracts over £154,000 for services and £3.8m for works have to be advertised in the Official Journal for the European Union (OJEU) and rules that that promote non-discriminatory and transparent competition must be followed. Freedom of Information Act 2000 As a public sector organisation, the Freedom of Information Act 2000 binds Your Local County Council. This Act came into force on 01 January 2005 and is designed to make the public sector and its processes, open and transparent. As a result all information that is supplied to the County Council as part of the tendering process is potentially open for inspection. In each tender pack there is a schedule for information such as individual prices and trade secrets to be exempt from publication or dissemination, however all that information is subject to challenge by the Information Commissioner and could as a result be made public. EU directives specify timescales that must be followed to ensure interested parties are given reasonable time to respond to adverts and prepare submissions.

At any time during the process you may be invited to make a presentation, attend an interview or arrange a site visit by SCC personnel.
    • Pricing schedule
    {I visit at least (1) public sector agency every day (5 days per week) – and one of the main reasons they can’t give contracts to (Tom, Dick & Harry) – do you know who I am?” it would help you greatly if you knew my function – because you would then understand the reasons for the process}

Late receipt of tenders Telephone enquiries (except where specifically invited) Lobbying for information from officers involved Maintain our integrity throughout these processes; Follow a fully auditable process compliant with public procurement legislation; Give feedback to unsuccessful bidders on request following award of a contract according to the following:
  • 9. Guidance Notes: Standstill Period For all contracts tendered under EU Directives, a ten-day 'standstill period' must be observed between the decision to award and contract conclusion. Once the decision to award a contract is made, each tenderer must be notified in writing on the outcome of the tender process. Minimum Number of Days There must be a minimum of ten calendar days between the despatch of this notification and the conclusion of the contract. Special rules apply where a tenderer requests a debrief on the tender process. In this instance, advice should be sought from the Head of Procurement and Contract Management at the earliest opportunity. Contract Award Notice All contracts awarded under EU Directives, including contracts for Residual services, must be announced by means of a Contract Award Notice in OJEU transmitted no later than 48 calendar days after the date of award.

  • 35. In response to the market, all public sector agencies and the large private sector firms has developed a standard form of prequalification (PQQ) to enable their buying or procurement department to provide their generic prequalification details centrally and avoid the need for multiple pre-qualifications. This form should be completed and certified as being accurate by one of the company's directors. The completion of this form does not commit the authority / agency / firm in any way nor is it intended to circumvent any legal requirements required under EC Procurement Directives or Competition rules. The authority / agency /firm is at liberty to confirm any details entered on to the form and may request an audit of the detail giving reasonable notice. The form only requests generic company information and project specific pre-qualification detail may be requested separately at the appropriate time. It is anticipated that for certain tender exercises a director of the company may be required to confirm the accuracy of the information at the given time. The completed document may be provided either in hard copy or electronic format. All requests for clarification or further information in respect of a PQQ should be addressed to the named contact point. No approach of any kind in connection with a PQQ should be made to any other person within, or associated with the authority / agency / firm . General Guidance Notes 2:
