Annual Prequalification Review
The County sends out e-mail prequalification notification reminding consulting firms to establish, or renew, their prequalification for the coming Prequalification Cycle, which runs from August 1 to July 31 to following year. Consultants also may prequalify for a specific project prior to the project's submittal date.
Prequalification Expires Annually On July 31
- Prequalification forms are accepted throughout the Prequalification Cycle (August 1 to July 31) the following year. The prequalification submittals are valid only for the particular cycle in which it was submitted.
- Irregular submittals are sent a courtesy letter for correct information needed, as long as the prequalification submittal is not with a specific project submittal.
- Firms that submit prequalification forms with a project submittal, run the risk of being eliminated from the project due to an incorrect prequalification submittal. We strongly suggest early prequalification.
