The purpose of this Registration Scheme is to supplement the Roads and Maritime Services Prequalification Scheme and to classify contractors and subcontractors to Roads and Maritime commensurate with their technical and managerial expertise, financial capacity and previous performance.
The scheme aims to facilitate, but not replace, tender assessment for individual projects and to afford protection to Roads and Maritime and contractors against over-commitment.
Contractors prequalified under the Roads and Maritime Prequalification Scheme in Roadworks or Bridgeworks will be deemed to be registered in the appropriate registration categories, eg for roadworks, earthworks and drainage; and for bridgeworks, formwork. Separate application is not required.
Registration with Roads and Maritime will be on a three year basis. Contractors will be notified when to apply to renew their registration.
