The vendor prequalification process is modeled after other successful prequalification processes in our industry and is managed through a third-party consultant, Alliant Insurance Services, whom we have engaged to perform financial and safety evaluations. Because we have aligned our process with others in our industry, you may be able to reuse information you have provided to other general contractors or construction management firms.
After successfully completing the process, the prequalification status is valid for up to 12 months for HIGH risk Vendors and 24 months for LOW/MEDIUM risk vendors. During this time, you are visible to all our regional projects which may result in inclusion in multiple AvalonBay Communities Inc. bidder lists. Material changes to the provided information such as bankruptcy filings or jobsite fatalities will require you to re-enter the prequalification process sooner.
