Subcontractor Vendor Qualifications

WELBRO values the relationships we have with our subcontractors and vendors.  The special expertise provided by our subcontractors and vendors is a foundation to our success.  We have a reputation for being professional and fair in the subcontracting community while requiring adherence to our safety and quality policies.  Please see below for an outline of some of our most important, mandatory pre-qualification policies.

Qualification Requirements

1. WELBRO is a drug-free workplace and therefore requires evidence of an established drug-free workplace policy from all subcontractors.  The Subcontractor Profile Form summarizes how to confirm compliance with this requirement. An executed drug-free workplace letter is not required if a long form subcontract agreement is issued.

2. WELBRO has very specific insurance requirements.  Click on the following link to review and confirm compliance with these requirements:  Insurance Requirements. For subcontracts less than $25,000, only a Certificate of Insurance is required.

3. Qualifying for our bid list is based on recent, similar project experience, workload and financial strength.  Refer to our Projects Portfolio to learn the typical size and scope of our projects to see what type of experience we are seeking, then we invite you to complete our Subcontractor Profile form as discussed below.

Getting on our Bidders List

Getting on WELBRO’s Bidder’s List, essentially involves three steps.

  1. Send an email to: expressing your general interest and/or interest in a specific project. Please provide us with the services you provide and your contact information including legal company name per the State of Florida Division of Corporations / Sunbiz or other state agency if you’re not located in Florida.
  2. Click on this link to download the Subcontractor Profile Form, sign and submit through E-mail the completed Subcontractor Profile Form to:
  3. WELBRO will review your completed Subcontractor Profile Form, and if approved we will note your firm as an “Approved Bidder” in our bid system.  During our preparation of a bidders list, we prioritize by first – Approved Bidders, then Interested Subcontractors and/or subs that have previously bid WELBRO, and finally others.  In some competitive bid situations we may solicit “others” even if they haven’t completed the online prequalification to be competitive and fair to the marketplace.  Please note that we do not solicit every sub, for every job.  We prioritize as noted and select subcontractors to the best of our judgment for each project.

WELBRO utilizes BuildingConnected as our bid management software. This web based system includes a national list of subcontractors by trade. If you aren’t familiar with BuildingConnected, you may want to contact their Support offices for establishing an account/profile upon receipt of a Bid Invitation, you can create an account with a UserID and Password.  Click here to set up your free BuildingConnected Subcontractor Account.  Please note that BuildingConnected also offers a premium accounts, but only the free account is needed to access invitations to bid and documents that WELBRO post to the site.  Once you’ve created an account, you only need to keep your login information (UserID/Password) to view future Bid Invitations, download plans and documents for invited jobs.

Entering into an Agreement/Contract with WELBRO

After WELBRO is awarded a project, we will then short-list select subcontractors for the project from the Bidders List as noted above. These short-listed subcontractors will then have to provide updated information if it has been longer than 1 year since the initial prequalification was approved or if any of their insurance certificates are expired.
