Private consulting firms that desire to perform work or services for the Department must be prequalified to perform that type of work prior to submitting their Letter of Interest (LOI). However, if the advertisement allows, you may
submit your prequalification application at the same time as your Letter of Interest.
Firms that submit a Letter of Interest (LOI) as part of a team must be individually prequalified for the type of work they wish to perform, whether they are acting as the lead consultant or as a subconsultant.
Prequalification may be done for all the offices of the firm under one application in lieu of having each office prequalified separately. If an office is approved for a discipline of work, then all offices are considered approved for that discipline of work.
Once your company is prequalified, it is not considered prequalified indefinitely. You must renew annually and requalify every three years. The purpose of the annual renewal is to make sure NCDOT has a current Safety Index and a Non-Collusion and Debarment Certification on file.
The following information is required for each submittal:
