In order to streamline the pre-qualification stage, the Council has adopted the Constructionline methodology for demonstrating financial capability and work category experience.
Constructionline is an official government service managed by Capita under a public private partnership, and is the public sector minimum standard for pre-qualification as regulated by BIS (Dept. For Business Innovation and Skills)

Constructionline registered status of suspended, inactive or not in line with advert requirements will render the PQQ as a fail.
For any queries on the Constructionline methodology, please contact:
Michael Waddington, Constructionline Client Relationship Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel No. +44 0758 4408188
