Find an Endorsed Consultant

Become an Endorsed Consultant - updated 26 July 2021

Urban Utilities is undertaking a review of the current register of Endorsed Consultants and invites suitably qualified engineering consultants (Respondent) to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for registration as an Endorsed Consultant.

The purpose of this Invitation for EOI is to:

  • provide information to potential Respondents about the Certification Scheme;
  • outline the EOI Process and timetable;
  • invite potential Respondents to submit EOIs and inform them as to the information to be included in any EOIs;
  • set out the Evaluation Criteria against which Urban Utilities will evaluate each EOI and select Respondents to be registered as Endorsed Consultant.

 

For your information – Urban Utilities – Expression of Interest (EOI) for registration as an Endorsed Consultant

The Expression of Interest (EOI) for registration as an Endorsed Consultant has been published on Queensland Government's QTenders online tendering website.

Registration on QTenders is essential to have access to the EOI.

The EOI was published on QTenders on Monday 26 July 2021.

An indicative timetable of the EOI process, from inviting EOIs to subsequent establishment of a new register, is provided with the EOI documentation.

The new register of Endorsed Consultants, to be established as a result of this EOI process, will replace the existing register of Endorsed Consultants. Those endorsed consultants who are presently on the register will, therefore, need to re-apply if they wish to remain on the register.

The EOI Process is managed by Urban Utilities Group Procurement and all enquiries and clarification questions in relation to this EOI must be submitted in writing via email to QUUGroupProcurement@urbanutilities.com.au. The email subject should be ‘Certification Scheme Endorsed Consultants’.

Pending the outcome of the EOI and the issue by Urban Utilities of a transitional arrangements notice, the Endorsed Consultants register (above) will remain accessible to the public and currently Endorsed Consultants will continue to perform certification services.
