Subcontractors Application Guidelines

The Plaza Construction Prequalification process consists of (6) entry screens plus a final summary screen where your information can be reviewed and printed prior to final submission. Certain information is mandatory and indicated as such by a black triangle in the field. All mandatory fields must be completed prior to proceeding to the subsequent screen.  

Navigation through the pages is accomplished via 'Next' or 'Previous' links at the Top Right and Bottom Right of the screens.

Although the process should only take only a few minutes to complete, you are able to exit and re-enter the form, (as long as it is prior to final submission), without losing your work. Simply re-enter your EIN and you will be prompted for the password to re-access your submission. Once your information is submitted, your password is invalidated.  You will not be able to re-access the system until notified for renewal. There is no need to maintain your password after submission.

You are requested to maintain Mixed-Case formatting for all fields. Phone numbers are requested to follow the following format ###-###-####.
