Subcontractors will instead be required to provide EllisDon with information about their company’s experience and financial capability to complete the Subcontract Work. It is the RFQ Contractor’s responsibility to have completed the online Subguard application (refer to Appendix “J” in the RFQ Documents) and have the required current Subguard® rating from EllisDon within one (1) week after RFQ Closing. Having the required current Subguard® rating from EllisDon as noted herein will be a condition for further assessment and consideration of the received Quotation. EllisDon will remain available to address any questions or concerns.

The EllisDon “Subguard® Subcontractor Qualification Application” will be sent to you electronically. The form is to be filled out on-line by the Subcontractor. For this purpose, please contact Lisa Smythies at  within two (2) working days from the date of this RFQ Package and provide the name and e-mail address of the person in your company who will be responsible for filling out the online application form. EllisDon will require a minimum of three (3) weeks for processing an application.
