About the PC Pre-Qualification Info Form

Use this form to enter pre-qualification information for a subcontractor.

This questionnaire-like form contains a combination of questions and informational data that allow you to evaluate prospective subcontractors and determine whether they meet the qualifications needed to perform specific construction services.

Tip: This form contains a large number of fields and grids. This may cause a delay in load/refresh time if you have large numbers of records. To shorten load/refresh time, consider reducing the number of records returned to the form using the Override Max # Rows Returned for Forms field (in VA User Profile or User Options, Main Menu).

To acquire the information that goes into this form, you can print the PC Pre-Qualification Report in 'Blank Form' format, have the subcontractor fill out the questionnaire, and then use the completed report to fill out the information in this form. Once this form is complete, you can run the PC Pre-Qualification Report again, but this time in 'Report' format, to review of the subcontractor's information.

When you are ready to select a subcontractor to perform a job or scope of work, you can use the PC Subcontractor Selection report to filter subcontractors for review based on vendor group, region of work, scope of work, and/or project type.

Each tab on this form represents different areas of information that may be required for qualification. You will only need to fill out the information that you require when determining a subcontractor’s qualifications. The form tabs are listed below, along with a brief description of the type of information entered on the tab.
