720 CMR 5.10 - Ratings for Prequalification of Prospective Bidders for Statewide Engineering Field Survey Services

(1) General. Ratings shall be basically determined upon the Surveyor's financial resources, and upon its competency and responsibility as indicated by the vehicles, instruments, equipment and personnel available to the Surveyor, and by the prior experience of the Surveyor with this and other public or private clients. Unlimited Maximum Capacity Ratings shall not be allowed.
(2) Duration of Prequalification Ratings. Prequalification Ratings shall remain in effect for not more than 12 months following the date of prequalification.
(3) Revision of Prequalification Ratings. Whenever the Department has substantial reason to believe that the condition of a firm previously prequalified is less favorable than at the time of its last application, a new Prequalification Application shall be requested in writing stating the reason therefore. If the requested statement is not filed within 30 days from date of notice, the current rating shall be considered forfeited, and the party concerned will not be permitted to bid until a new Prequalification Application has been received and acted upon by the Department. A prequalification rating shall be modified whenever it is determined that the Surveyor does not have sufficient vehicle, instrument, equipment, personnel or other resources to satisfactorily perform the required survey work, or to provide the number of survey parties for which the Surveyor may have been qualified. A Surveyor's request for revision of a prequalification rating will be considered by the Department at any time provided a new Prequalification Application is submitted. If at any time subsequent to filing of the Prequalification Application any significant change occurs in the financial condition of the Surveyor, or in the status of its vehicles, instruments equipment or personnel that would materially affect the Surveyor's ability to provide the number of survey parties for which it is prequalified, and/orany change occurs in the name of structure of the firm, officers, or ownership, the Surveyor shall give written notice to the Department, whereupon the Department may require the Surveyor to submit a new application for prequalification.
