Contractor Pre-qualification Process

The Planning, Design & Construction team within the Facilities Design and Operations Division manages the pre-qualification of contractors for construction projects at the University of Notre Dame.

This pre-qualification process allows the University to obtain the most accurate and complete information on prospective construction service providers and to identify firms qualified to perform a particular task. The information provided is for pre-qualification purpose only. Specific qualifications and experience may be required for each project or job awarded by the University. Pre-qualification does not ensure the award of a contract.
