The Houston Area Safety Council developed the Contractor Prequalification Database through a collaboration with the Commercial Issues Committee of the Houston Business Roundtable. The standardized prequalification form (PQF) is used throughout the industry by contractor companies to provide a thorough description of their services and qualifications. Owners use this information to determine if contractors meet requirements for jobs at their sites.

The paper PQF was converted to a web-based system and launched in the spring of 2004.

PQF Rich Internet Application tools are part of the HASC Xnet and supported by HASC.
