Pre-qualification and assessment of health and safety is an important part of the procurement process. Before Tōtika, there was no common standard for pre-qualification resulting in many proprietary and internal pre-qualification schemes. Creating inefficiency in the supply chain because suppliers had to repeatedly pre-qualify against different schemes and standards. This repeated and duplicated effort wastes time and money for both clients and contractors. There is a strong desire within the industry alike for a common pre-qualification standard and streamlined pre-qualification process; Tōtika has been developed to deliver these outcomes.
What is Tōtika? It creates a fair and equitable scheme with the objective that suppliers only need to pre-qualify ONCE instead of duplicating effort for each new client and opportunity through:
What it isn't. Tōtika is not just another pre-qualification system, it is a single framework that brings all health and safety pre-qualifications together under one umbrella to make the process cheaper and quicker for everyone. Tōtika does not absolve a buyers/clients responsibility for health and safety, nor does it guarantee any supplier capability of doing a job. Tōtika is not for profit and so any surplus after costs will be used for the benefit of industry.
Details on the contractor/supplier grading process are available within the scheme rules document. If you do not agree with the category you have been allocated you may submit an appeal to firstname.lastname@example.org Tōtika will consider this appeal and discuss the decision with you.
