Contractor Prequalification Process
KUB's Procurement Department has developed a Contractor Prequalification Program that will include all construction contractors (electric, gas, water, wastewater, vegetation management, and paving). Any contractor that wishes to bid on and perform construction work for KUB will be required to participate in the Prequalification Program. KUB is now accepting pre-qualification applications for contractors who would like to bid on KUB construction projects.
Compete in the Procurement Process
Compete in the bidding process. As a courtesy, KUB will invite prospective bidders to view bids via www.bidsync.com. If you do not receive a request for quote, bid, or proposal, check the bid opportunities on our website at www.kub.org or at www.bidsync.com, view all public bid solicitations on our Procurement board located at our Middlebrook Pike location in the Procurement Lobby, or contact KUB Procurement Personnel.
Develop a Responsive Quote, Bid, or Proposal
Read solicitation documents carefully as they include standard forms and special provisions along with contract clauses. Assess the task, risk, costs, and potential profit. Be as complete and accurate as possible. Do not guess or overpromise in your bid. Allow adequate time to prepare your quote, bid, or proposal.
Even if your quote, bid, or proposal is not successful, it is important to know who was and why. KUB’s Procurement Department will share the results with you upon request. You might receive valuable information for writing your next offer.
