The National Prequalification System for Non-residential Building (NPS) aims to create certainty and consistency, and streamline the process of prequalification for contractors working in multiple jurisdictions. It applies to non-residential government building contracts where the construction cost estimate is $50 million and above in Participating Jurisdictions.
This seamless process for mutual recognition of prequalification status for contractors across all jurisdictions commenced on 1 January 2011.
Applicants should access the full set of NPS documents before undertaking their applications.
The APCC regularly reviews the National Prequalification System (NPS) in relation to practicality within the construction industry, government policy and compliance.
