How it works
Process for Pre-qualification and Registration of Contractors or Suppliers
The registration and pre-qualification processes are intended to register/pre-qualify a competent cadre of Suppliers capable of providing goods or services in categories specific to The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) and its subsidiaries (National Energy, PPGPL and NGC CNG).
There are two phases to pre-qualification
1. Registration Phase
Suppliers are required to create their company’s account and upload the following:
- General statutory/regulatory documents (Company registration, B.I.R, V.A.T etc.)
- Financial Documents (Banking details)
- Legal Status
- Insurance Data
Upon review and approval, a system generated notification is sent to the Supplier to inform them of their registration status.
2. Qualification Phase
Upon successful completion and approval of the registration phase, Suppliers are required to make a payment as instructed in subsequent correspondence and upload the payment receipt to access the qualification phase via a link which will be sent to the Supplier.
Suppliers are required to complete the pre-qualification questionnaire in its entirety and upload supporting documentation to corroborate information provided.
Qualification will be based on meeting the minimum requirements in the following criteria:
- Work Experience
- Personnel Resource
- Financial Capability
- Equipment & Assets
- Health, Safety and Environment (where applicable)
