What Does it Mean to be Prequalified?
MaineDOT uses a Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) process when awarding non-construction contracts. Our list of prequalified firms forms the foundation of MaineDOT's consultant selection process when awarding contracts with State and/or Federal funding valued at $150,000 or less.
Being pre-qualified for service item(s) under a specific service area does not mean a consultant is pre-qualified to perform all work generated by MaineDOT within that service area; the project scope and the complexity of same should be taken into consideration when considering a consultant from our list of pre-qualified consultants.
Select a question to view answer.
Yes, MaineDOT does occasionally utilize the RFP process for these contracts.
The Department utilizes the Brooks Act (a QBS process) via an RFP or RFQ. Consultants considered for these contracts are those who have been awarded General Consultant Agreements (GCAs) through MaineDOT’s Department Wide Request for Qualifications Process. When selecting consultants for contracts greater than $500,000 MaineDOT utilizes an RFP process.
