Florida Law (Chapter 337.14 F.S.) And Rules of the State of Florida, Department of Transportation, (Chapter 14-22, F.A.C.) require contractors to be prequalified with the Department in order to bid for the performance of road, bridge, or public transportation construction contracts greater than $250,000.00.
Prequalification is accomplished by using an annual application process. Applicants should read Chapter 337.14 F.S. and Rule 14-22 F.A.C. to review for compliance prior to completing the application.
Information for prequalification to bid contracts other than road, bridge, or public transportation construction (such as professional services or commodities) can be found at the Florida Department of Transportation Procurement Office.
The annual Contractor Prequalification process for construction contractors establishes the approved work classes and maximum capacity rating (MCR) for each successful applicant. A Certificate of Qualification is issued which lists the approved work classes and provides instructions for online access to the Maximum Capacity Rating in dollars.
