Contractor Pre-Qualifications

Purpose

The purpose of this pre-qualification process is to develop and maintain a list of pre-qualified contractors to perform non-petitioned maintenance work on behalf of the Ottawa County Water Resources Commission and the various drainage districts under the jurisdiction of the Ottawa County Water Resources Commission.

Process/Criteria

To be eligible to contract for non-petitioned drain maintenance that is not undergoing the bidding process, a contractor must submit an application to the Water Resources Commissioner, which at a minimum includes:

  • Proof of Registering as a County Vendor
  • Proof of Worker’s Compensation or Exemption
  • List of Contractor’s Available Equipment
  • Reference List

The Water Resources Commissioner shall have complete discretion in approving or denying an application based on the totality of the information provided in the application.

Contractor Pre-Qualification Application

List

Upon approval of an application, the Contractor shall be placed on the Pre-Qualified Contractor List, which shall be posted on the Water Resources Commissioner’s or County’s website. This list shall be updated annually.

Removal

A contractor may be removed from the Pre-Qualification List upon:

  • Contractor’s request to be removed, or termination of a Contractor’s legal entity; or
  • Contractor’s failure to sustain any of the above required criteria evaluated in the application process.
  • Water Resources Commissioner’s determination, at his/her sole discretion, that contractor has failed to demonstrate quality or timely performance of work under a contract with a drainage district or under any other contract for similar work.
*Please note that placement on the list does not guarantee a contractor will be selected to perform work. The Water Resources Commissioner sustains full discretion and authority to either bid non-petitioned maintenance work or to select any contractor from the pre-qualified list to perform said non-petitioned maintenance work.
