Invitation to pre-qualify for municipal facility electrical and plumbing repairs

Article content

The City of Wetaskiwin wants to shortlist qualified contractors to perform ongoing electrical and plumbing repairs at its municipal facilities.

The pre-qualification process is completed every three years by the city’s engineering department so that the city’s contract opportunities are fairly offered and vetted.

“This process is important because it encourages fiscal responsibility with public funds, which is one of the city’s four commitments to the community, as outlined in the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan,” said City Manager Sue Howard. “Pre-qualified contractors enable staff to quickly meet maintenance needs through predetermined fixed-price companies. This initiative also provides a transparent process that allows local contractors to work on city utilities – keeping taxpayers’ money in our community. “

All contractors are welcome to submit a pre-qualification bid package, with local businesses preferred during the scoring process.
