Abatement Contractor Prequalification

Contractors wishing to conduct asbestos abatement activities on any Michigan State University (MSU) project must first be prequalified by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS).  Contractors selected for prequalification will be approved for 2018 calendar year and will need to reapply in September for the 2019 calendar year.  Successful prequalification does not specifically guarantee work with MSU.

MSU will determine the final list of prequalified abatement contractors.  MSU is not responsible for any expenses incurred in the preparation of this prequalification application nor does MSU assume any contractual obligation by issuing this application.  MSU may elect to interview contractors or request additional information.  MSU reserves the right to reject any and all submittals either in whole or in part and to waive any irregularities.  Please be aware that submittals may be subject to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) records request pursuant to MCL Sections 15.231 to 15.246.

MSU reserves the right to waive prequalification requirements for abatement contractors on a limited case by case basis.  A waiver of prequalification must be in writing from MSU EHS and will be specific to a single project. MSU also reserves the right to remove contractors from the prequalified list for noncompliance with the applicable asbestos regulations, a project-specific asbestos specification, or the MSU asbestos management plan.

Successful applicants will be listed here by December 15th, 2017.
