Contractor Management Prequalification System

What is a Contractor Management Prequalification System?

‘Avetta’ is the Shire’s Contractor Management Prequalification and Verification System.

The Shire has a requirement for Contractors to be registered and approved within a contractor management prequalification and verification system.  The ‘Avetta’ system is used to support our Supplier Management Program.

By partnering with Avetta, we have streamlined our prequalification processes and ensure your organisation’s skill sets are visible across all our business – not solely where you may currently be working.

Avetta’s online software provides a cost-effective system to manage the Shires exposure to risk through contracting and reduces the administrative burden on contractors through standardisation of OHS pre-qualification and assessment processes.

The Shire use Avetta’s Contractor Management Prequalification and Verification System to pre-qualify and classify contractors, according to their safety and environmental management systems, technical and resource capability, financial position and overall past performance.

Our aim is to streamline requirements, to improve operational effectiveness and reduce duplication for both Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and our suppliers, thereby improving consistency and reducing the administrative burden on our contractors.

Why does the Shire use contractor management software?

  • Streamline the process of tender preparation, submission and evaluation by significantly reducing the amount of information to be provided in the tender response.
  • Provide a degree of protection to both the Mornington Peninsula Shire and contractors against over-commitment.
  • Provide a degree of protection & confidence in our appointed contractors ability to manage safety and environmental risks during works for the benefit of staff, workers and the community alike.
