Home > Contractor Prequalification
The "Notice to Contractors" for each project will state the prequalification requirements for that project. Bids will be received from any contractor; however, the contract will only be awarded to contractors passing the qualification requirements. Apparent low bidders not prequalified at the time of bid opening can expect a two to three week delay in the award process while their application is processed. They also run the risk of not meeting MaineDOT's prequalification standards.
Current Contractor Prequalification Status
Application and Supplemental Forms
All new applicants must submit the Contractor Prequalification Application, Safety and Civil Rights Supplemental. Contractors requesting to add prequalificaion categories must submit a new application. Letters are sent in the Fall of each year requesting required submittals for updates and renewal information.
Except for unusual circumstances, the Department does not require prequalification for contracts which have a construction cost of under $300,000.00. Other contracts considered to be "specialty work" that do not generally require a prequalification category are bridge painting, pavement crack sealing and demolition. Bridge Painting Contractors please read the Notice to Contractors at the time of advertisement for the Steel Structures Painting Council (SSPC) certifications required.
Please Note: The above Safety Supplemental is not required for Bureau of General Services (BGS) projects and the Civil Rights Supplemental is not required for BGS or Maine Turnpike Authority (MTA) projects. However, if you get a prequal for BGS or MTA projects and then bid on a MaineDOT project, both of these supplementals must be filled out and returned to the MaineDOT prior to contract award.
