Supplier Qualifications

Time to renew your qualifications to participate in public tenders 2016-2019

Companies that wish to supply goods and services to Japanese government organisations need to obtain qualifications to participate in tender procedures. Many organisations operate their own qualification system, but national government organisations also have a common qualification system, called ‘tou-itsu shikaku shinsei’ (unified qualification application system).

Regional & local supplier qualifications

When preparing for tendering at regional and local level, it will be necessary to consult with the procuring entity regarding the formalities to obtain supplier qualifications.  While national entities and prefectures are covered by the Unified Supplier Qualification system, all other entities varying from large cities such as Tokyo and Osaka to smaller municipalities will require separate procedures.

Unified Supplier Qualification

Companies that wish to supply goods and services to Japanese government entities need to obtain supplier qualification in order to be eligible to take part in bid on government tenders. For national government institutions, and organisations falling directly under the jurisdiction of those institutions, the so-called Unified Supplier Qualification System or touitsu shikaku shinsa exists.
