Will Vendors who are unable to provide evidence of ISO 9001-2015 certification or equivalent recognized quality control verification, still be considered to pre-qualify in the reverse auction?
RLNICHOLS on 17-May-2021 10:34:37 AM CDT
The requirement for ISO 9001-2015 or equivalent quality control certification ensures that the manufacturer and installer have a defined "Quality Management System" which results in a defects-free installation that will perform throughout the warranty period, including any factory authorized repairs. ISO 9001 is the most commonly recognized certification, but you can propose to provide another QMS certification in the qualifications submittal. Whatever certification you propose, include a copy of it in your submittal. RLL
