Certification Board

The Public Works Certification Board is responsible for pre-qualifying designers, planners, contractors, and subcontractors, as mandated by Indiana Code 4-13.6-4. All designers and planners must be pre-qualified prior to bidding on State contracts. Contractors and subcontractors are required to be pre-qualified by the State prior to bidding on State contracts valued at more than $150,000.

As a part of the pre-qualification process, the board may carry out any necessary investigations to determine whether an applicant is competent and responsible and has the financial resources and experience necessary to complete the project in accordance with State law.

In an effort to streamline the application process by reducing redundancy in provided information as well as a number of common errors found during the application process, the Certification Board has elected to move the application process to an all new, electronic format. This new format will also improve the Board’s review and response to all applications.

To access the application, please use the following link ( Please note that mail and mailed-in applications will no longer be necessary and as such, will not be accepted unless specifically requested by the Board. This application will provide step-by-step assistance and will provide prompts for any necessary corrections.  Step by step instructions for using the application process can be found here
