Determining Grading Designation
Your contractor grading designation is determined by your financial capability and your works capability.
Your financial capability relates to your financial history (turnover), the value of your completed contracts and the amount of working capital you can muster to sustain a contract, i.e. available capital. Available capital is determined from the liquid cash resources available to you, including bank balances, loans that may be leveraged and any financial sponsorships.
Your works capability is determined by the largest contract you have undertaken in your class of construction works, the number of professionals you employ, and your fulfillment of relevant statutory requirements.
Your contractor grading designation will be used by government (national, provincial, municipal and state owned enterprises) to decide if your tender will be considered for a particular construction works contract.
