Engineering consultants who wish to provide prime-consultant services on highway, bridge planning and water management projects must be pre-qualified by Alberta Transportation.
Consultants must submit details of their firm's staff, capabilities, expertise and experience in the categories of work they wish to be pre-qualified.
A committee of senior personnel will evaluate all submissions to determine if the consultant meets the requirements for pre-qualification in each category.
Consultants may submit their pre-qualification request at any time. Those who are already pre-qualified in a specific category must renew their pre-qualification every 3 years.
Consultants who wish to provide prime-consultant services on other types of projects that Alberta Transportation is involved in do not need to be pre-qualified. For those projects, an open Request for Proposal will be posted on the Alberta Purchasing Connection website, as described in the consulting and tendering opportunities page.
