Prequalification Forms Package to Be Available, Free-of-Charge, To Make Design and Construction Bidding Process Easier for All Parties

WASHINGTON – ConsensusDocs is making available a new free package of standard contract documents to make the design and construction bidding process easier for all involved parties.  The contract document coalition is making its Prequalification Forms Package available for free so firms can bid on projects that require ConsensusDocs contracts without having to pay for the prequalification documents.

“Making these documents available for free is the best way to ensure the broadest number of firms bid on projects using ConsensusDocs,” said Brian Perlberg, ConsensusDocs Executive Director and Counsel.  “Bidding on a ConsensusDocs project should be as easy as working on a ConsensusDocs project.”

Perlberg noted that an increasing number of public and private owners are requiring firms to use ConsensusDocs contracts for their projects.  Offering the package of documents for free will allow firms to bid on these projects without having to first pay for the prequalification forms. 

The Prequalification Forms Package includes the following documents:

•    ConsensusDocs 220 Constructor’s Statement of Qualifications for Engineered Construction
•    ConsensusDocs 221 Constructor’s Statement of Qualifications
•    ConsensusDocs 222 Architect-Engineer’s Statement of Qualifications
•    ConsensusDocs 421 Design-Builder’s Statement of Qualifications
•    ConsensusDocs 721 Subcontractor’s Statement of Qualifications

ConsensusDocs are the only consensus standard contracts written and endorsed by a unique coalition of 38 design and construction industry associations. ConsensusDocs remains committed to improving the industry by providing best practice contract documents. This new, free subscription package is just another way ConsensusDocs helps you build better projects!
