Public Sector Supplier Questionnaires are often written around Publicly Available Specification (PAS) PAS 91 is a standardised pre-qualification questionnaire which has been developed to reduce the need for suppliers to complete a variety of different pre-qualification questionnaires for different, and in some cases, the same clients.

Developed by the British Standards Institute (BSI), the question set has been commissioned by Government and is a recommended common minimum standard for construction procurement.

Completing pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) for multiple clients can be time-consuming and costly.

Different clients’ PQQs will usually contain some similar questions, presented in a different format.

PAS 91 has been developed to address this problem, providing a standard pre-qualification question set.

The benefits are as follows:

  • One standard question set across different clients, ensuring you understand what information will be required from you at pre-qualification stage.

  • You can develop standard responses to the ‘core’ questions which can be used time again in response to any Buyer using PAS 91

  • Exemptions from sections if you hold industry recognized accreditations

  • A less time consuming and costly pre-qualification process, allowing you to participate in more opportunities and potentially win more work

Where organisational gaps exist in accreditations, certifications, skill sets, turnover etc…these can be prioritised as short, medium or longer-term objectives, enabling a future bid strategy.
