Special Conditions: The Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources shall comply with O.C.G.A § 36-91-20 as amended for mandatory pre-qualification of prospective bidders. Therefore, interested applicants should obtain an Annual Pre-Qualification Application For Utility Relocations Associated with Road Improvement Projects from the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office, 75 Langley Drive, 3rd Floor, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30045 (Telephone No. 770-822-8720). Applications will be evaluated based on established criteria listed in the application. All qualified and disqualified applicants will be notified in writing.

One (1) original application must be completed and date stamped into the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office. Although the Purchasing Division will take effort to notify pre-qualified Contractors of bids that are based on the established criteria of the application, it is the Contractor's ultimate responsibility to ensure that they remain abreast of Gwinnett County's solicitations. Depending on the scope and complexity of work to be performed, individual projects may require a project-specific pre-qualification, independent of the annual pre-qualification process.

The review and approval process will require a minimum of three weeks from the date application is received into the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office. Contractors under consideration for pre-qualification may not submit bids for projects that have advertised prior to the contractor's notification of pre-qualification. Questions regarding annual pre-qualification applications should be submitted in writing to Janice Bradshaw, Purchasing Associate II, fax 770-822-8728 or e-mail Janice.bradshaw@gwinnettcounty.com.

Applicant shall not attach information in lieu of completion of the application document.

All additional pages should be clearly labeled with the applicant's name, section, name item number and page number.

Applicant's qualification will be determined based upon the information presented. All questions must be answered in full, without exception. Failure to do so may result in the applicant being deemed non-responsive and therefore may not be considered for qualification.

FOR ANNUAL

PRE-QUALIFICATION

OF CONTRACTORS

FOR THE INSTALLATION, REPLACEMENT

AND/OR RELOCATION OF PRESSURIZED WATER MAINS AND SEWER

FORCE MAINS AND

APPURTENANCES

The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners is soliciting applications from Contractors for annual pre-qualification to furnish labor, materials and equipment for the installation, replacement and / or relocation of pressurized water mains and sewer force mains and appurtenances at various locations throughout Gwinnett County.

Special Conditions: The Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources shall comply with O.C.G.A § 36-91-20 as amended for mandatory pre-qualification of prospective bidders. Therefore, interested applicants should obtain an Annual Pre-Qualification Application for the Installation, Replacement and/or Relocation of Pressurized Water Mains and Sewer Force Mains and Appurtenances from the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office, 75 Langley Drive, 3rd Floor, Lawrenceville, Georgia 30045 (Telephone No. 770-822-8720). Applications will be evaluated based on established criteria listed in the application. All qualified and disqualified applicants will be notified in writing. Contractors will be considered "pre-qualified" upon issuance of the notification of pre-qualification. Pre-qualified Contractors will remain "pre-qualified " until the County determines otherwise. One (1) original of the application must be completed and date stamped into the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office. Although the Purchasing Division will take effort to notify pre-qualified Contractors of bids that are based on the established criteria of the application, it is the Contractor's ultimate responsibility to ensure that they remain abreast of Gwinnett County's solicitations. Depending on the scope and complexity of work to be performed, individual projects may require a project-specific pre-qualification, independent of the annual pre-qualification process.

The review and approval process will require a minimum of three weeks from the date application is received into the Gwinnett County Purchasing Office. Contractors under consideration for pre-qualification may not submit bids for projects that have advertised prior to the contractor's notification of pre-qualification. Questions regarding annual pre-qualification applications should be submitted in writing to Janice Bradshaw, Purchasing Associate II, fax 770-822-8728 or e-mail Janice.bradshaw@gwinnettcounty.com.

Applicant shall not attach information in lieu of completion of the application document. All information requested by the County shall be provided within the application document; however, additional pages may be attached if more space is required or as otherwise instructed within the application document. All additional pages should be clearly labeled with the applicant's name, section, name item number and page number.

Applicant's qualification will be determined based upon the information presented. All questions must be answered in full, without exception. Failure to do so may result in the applicant being deemed non-responsive and therefore may not be considered for qualification.
