Set the Pre-Qualification Expiry Date in line with the Contractor's insurance documents expiring so you can review your contractors' Pre-Quals at differing times throughout the year instead of being hit with them all at once.

Pre Qual awaiting approval

 

All items will initially be marked as Required.  Once your contractors start responding to the Pre-Qual request the status will change to Pending.  You can then go and review these items and either Approve or Reject them.

 

If you Approve an item it will change to an Approved Status.

 

If you Reject an item it will change back to a Required Status.  The contractor will NOT be advised that you have rejected this item so you will need to make contact with the Contractor by other means to advise them of the rejection and what you require from them.

 

You can also click on View on any Pre-Qual item to view any documents that have been submitted or any notes made by the contractor.

Once you click on Edit for any Pre-Qual Item you will be able to view any information supplied by the Contractor and make changes yourself.

 

For each item the Contractor can:

  • Respond with Yes, No or Not Applicable.  You can change these if you don't feel the answer chosen is correct.  If Not Applicable is chosen then the 5 star rating will not apply to that item and will not be calculated in the final H & S Score.
  • Notes - the Contractor and you can make notes in relation to the Pre-Qual item which you can both view.
  • Rating - you can rate the document from 1 Star (poor) to 5 Stars (excellent) for each item.  The H & S score will be calculated based on the number of Stars given.
  • Expiry Date - the expiry date can be set by the contractor or yourself.  When an expiry date is selected and if notifications are turned on then both you and the contractor will receive email reminders that the document is expiring 28 & 7 days out, on the day of expiry and 7 & 28 days after the expiry date if the document has not been renewed and the expiry date updated.
