Accreditations and Pre Qualification Questionnaires (PQQ)
Getting the right accreditation can be crucial to small and medium firms looking to win business, and there are so many: CHAS, SafeContractor, Achilles, Constructionline to name a few. We would not advise which schemes to go for - that is a commercial decision for you to make.
But once the decision has been made, we can assess what you already do, what you need to do and providing a detailed fixed quotation to help you do it.
We recognise that accreditation bodies are wise to consultants who just "do it all for you". CHAS for instance has worked out that some consultants claim to guarantee accreditation by just putting together a "dummy" pack of documents and answer all the questions without really involving their client.
That is not what we do. You need to buy into the process and work with us to get accredited. And you have to be the frontman! We know that this will be hard work but we also know how to help you succeed. You get on tender lists and have a shot at some great projects.
And the news gets better, Once you are on one list, the others are easier. We are on top of the efforts of an organisation called SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) who most of the accrediting bodies sign up to. They recognise common ground in each of the schemes and make allowances when you apply. For more information, see http://www.ssip.org.uk/.
SSIP are increasingly involving big contractors and many trade associations you might like to join. But lots of other organisations still want you to fill in their own applications. Subscribe with us and you get assistance when you need it with these ever more complex and demanding PQQs, often at no extra cost. We will always try to help you with these questionnaires, just bring it on...
