National prequalification system for non-residential buildings

The National Prequalification System for Non-residential Buildings (NPS) applies to non-residential building contracts with a construction cost of $50 million or more.

The NPS streamlines the prequalification systems across Australia to:

  • prevent duplication of effort by contractors and jurisdictions
  • provide mutual recognition (where possible) of contractor prequalification by jurisdictions.

If you're a contractor wishing to prequalify for contracts valued at $50 million or more, you must apply under the NPS.

To be eligible to undertake Queensland Government building projects valued at $50 million or more, you also need to complete some sections of the Prequalification (PQC) System application form.
