Asnswer:- Thank you very much for writing to us. As per your query, Rules 15-18 of Public Procurement Rules, 2004 states that the pre-qualification of suppliers ad contractors is carried out. Procuring agency is required to specify in the bidding documents whether the pre-qualification is carried out for a specific job for once time or a period for completion of similar jobs. However, such period should not be more than one or two years to provide level playing field to all competitors.
