Its goal is to provide design professionals, contractors, and government officials with information regarding Qualifications Based Selection to ensure complaince with all applicable state and federal laws.

What is Qualifications Based Selection?
Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) is a process for the selection of design professional, including engineers, architects and land surveyors. It is a negotiated procurement process for selection based on qualifications and competence in relation to the work to be performed. Quality begins with qualifications-based selection. The members of IL QBS can help you gain a better understanding of the process of selecting an engineer, an architect or a land surveyor. From the pre-proposal stage through
proposals and interviews, we can help you streamline and improve each step. The QBS process is required by state and federal law for public projects in Illinois.
