Evaluation of Pre-qualification Criteria: Client Perspective; Jordan Case Study

Sultan A. Tarawneh

The purpose of this work is to identify the perception of the major clients on the importance of the pre-qualification criteria used to qualify contractors in the Jordanian construction industry. Also, it is aimed to provide suggestions for contractors to increase their chances in being pre-qualified by major clients. To achieve the objective of this work, the findings of previous exploratory qualitative interviews with owners, directors and senior managers of major client organizations in Jordan have been examined. The findings of this work indicated that public and private clients have different views about the importance and priorities of the pre-qualification criteria. Public clients place more weight on price after the contractor has been qualified. Special pre-qualification criteria are highly needed in Jordanian construction industry to meet the new requirement such as good manufacturing practice.
