The City of Vaughan (the City) placed advertisements in local newspapers inviting proposals from general contractors for the construction of a 23,500 square metre multi-use facility in the City. The project, a joint venture between the City and the York Region Catholic School Board, was limited to general contractors who had completed similar institutional projects at a value not less than $30,000,000. The proposal call required contractors to complete and submit a “CCA Document No. 11”, the Canadian Standard Form of Contractors Qualification Statement for Building Construction (the qualification statement). The qualification statement contains banking and bonding information, key company personnel who would be involved in the project, and a list of the contractor’s previous major projects and their total construction dollar value. Four contractors submitted proposals and a successful bidder was chosen.
