Construction Contractors​

Anyone seeking to bid on and/or perform work on Georgia DOT projects must be prequalified or registered with the Department. Currently, the Department has two forms of qualifications: Prequalified Contractor and Registered Subcontractor.

How to Apply

All applicants are required to submit one Prequalification application as a Subcontractor or Prime Contractor. For applications submitted as a Subcontractor, Form 478 and Reference Letters (if applicable) are required. For applications submitted as a Prime Contractor, Form 477, 478, Reference Letters (if applicable) and Financial Statement are required. Please submit applications to:


NOTE: Any application that does not include these items will not be processed, until the items are received.​​



When a contractor’s qualification is approved, a Certificate of Qualification will be issued and is generally valid for two (2) years.  In addition, GDOT can grant up to a 90-day extension, if requested for the preparation of a new qualification certificate. All applications must be received not less than ten (10) days before the Let Date.  A new application must be submitted for renewal of applications.

The Prequalification Unit will not notify contractors by mail or otherwise prior to the expiration date of their Certificate of Qualification nor will it notify Contractors by mail or otherwise of the need to renew their Certificate of Qualification.

NOTE: Contractors must renew their certificates every two years, or earlier. Failure to renew before the current certificate expires will place the contractor in an expired status and, therefore, ineligible to bid.
