Consultant Info

It is not necessary for a firm to have a physical office location in Georgia to become prequalified to do work for the State of Georgia. However, if a consultant is not a resident of Georgia, they must present a copy of an “Authorize to Conduct Business in Georgia” form, from the Georgia Secretary of State in lieu of a business license. This applies to New, Renewal, and Resubmittal or Additional applications.

When the prequalification certification expires, a new application must be completed and submitted for review. In order to avoid delaying the certification process, we ask that a consultant start their renewal process ninety (90) days prior to the expiration date of the certificate. Please note that once the application is entered and reviewed by the Committee, it supersedes the current application, making the current application null and void.

After a consultant has received the certificate, they may apply for additional area class(es) for the entire certificate period up to ninety (90) days prior to the date of expiration.  In the event an area class(es) is denied, the consultant may resubmit additional information for the specified area class(es) within thirty (30) days for another review.
