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.
