In February 2013 the University of Alberta was introducing a mandatory Health and Safety (H & S) Pre-Qualification process for contractors bidding at the University. This policy became effective on May 2013. There has been a change to this policy, so please see below.
Contractors intending to submit a bid for any construction work at the University will continue to be required to submit their H&S plans for review by the University H&S Division within the Facilities and Operations portfolio and must have attained a University H&S Pre-Qualification Registration Number prior to submitting a bid. The Pre-Qualification Registration Number is required to be stated on the bid form submission. This information is posted on Alberta Purchasing Connection as an ongoing information item to contractors as well as stated in each public bid opportunity.
In May 2013 we had also informed we would be using ISNetworld to support our review process for projects greater than $2.5 Million and constructors would be required to be enrolled with ISNetworld. Effective immediately we are discontinuing the requirement for contractors to register and maintain a subscription with ISNetworld to bid work at the University of Alberta.
