Prequalification scheme

VicRoads prequalification scheme lists suppliers who are prequalified to tender on VicRoads work.

The scheme is structured into groups of similar work types. Each group is further divided into categories that may have levels that define areas of expertise or competency. There are currently nine groups in the scheme.

  • Environment
  • Pavement and Geotechnical Engineering
  • Maintenance and General Works
  • Road and Bridge Construction
  • Road and Bridge Design
  • Traffic Management Services (Consultants)
  • Traffic Management Services (Contractors) *
  • Transport and Planning Studies
  • Other Professional Services

* The Traffic Guidance Scheme (TGS) and Traffic Management Plan (TMP) within the Traffic Management Services (Contractors) group has now been replaced by the Traffic Management Implementation (TMI) and Traffic Management Design (TMD) as the Temporary Traffic Management Accreditation (accreditation) program, which started on 1 February 2022. Please visit the accreditation program page to find out more and download the application form.

Please note:

  • Current prequalified traffic management companies will have 12 months to transition to accreditation. If a company has not obtained accreditation  by 31 January 2023, they will be unauthorised  to work on roads managed by the Department of Transport (DoT), apply for DoT issued Memorandum of Authorisation (MoA) permits or tender for VicRoads works.
  • New traffic management companies, currently not prequalified, will now need to apply for accreditation before they can tender for VicRoads work. 
  • The new accreditation program is part of the Traffic Management Reform program, which is transforming the traffic management industry by providing the additional support needed to prioritise the safety of workers, road users and local communities at all times. 

The VicRoads Prequalification Scheme information sheet [PDF 93Kb] shows the structure of the scheme, including a brief explanation of each level.

Effective 1 January 2020, all road management functions and responsibilities of the Roads Corporation (VicRoads) are transferred to and vested in the Head, Transport for Victoria (established under s64A of the Transport Integration Act 2010).

As a result, a reference to the Roads Corporation or VicRoads in the road management standards, manuals, guidelines, codes of practice, technical notes, drawings, specifications and other technical information and documentation available for download must be construed as a reference to Head, Transport for Victoria -

(a) so far as the reference relates to any period on or after 1 January 2020; and

(b) if not inconsistent with the subject matter.
