Builder Purchasing Services has developed this Trade Referral Program to assist our Builder Members in expanding and improving their Trade Partner database.

As we administer the Buyout (Bidding) Process for our members, they repeatedly inquire about adding qualified Trade Contractors to their bidder list. In the best interest of our members, we are expanding our
Preferred Trade Partner database to fulfill their request. We have already submitted Trade information to some of our members.

In order to be qualified, a Trade Contractor must be of good standing in the locality in which they perform their services and committed to follow the processes and procedures that Builder Purchasing Services provides for the builder.

Our Buyout (Bidding) Process is fully automated. In order to meet the requirements of this process, the Trade Contractor must be willing and able to commit to the following:

  1. Respond to Builder Purchasing Services invitation to complete the bid within the allotted  time period  (usually 2 weeks).
  2. All bid documentation will either be sent in the original Invitation to Bid via email or posted on our plan room website.
  3. All prints will be posted on our plan room. You have the option of doing your bid on line, ordering and picking up your prints or ordering and have them sent to you. You can select only the pages you need to complete your bid, but will ultimately be responsible for all pages within the set if it pertains to your trade in any way. Because of the affiliation we have with our reprographer, we have these services nationwide. 
  4. All proposals must reflect the material specifications and Scopes of Work set forth by the builder. If you can not adhere to these specifications, you must contact the builder to get a variance to submit a comparable product.
  5. All bids must be submitted to Builder Purchasing Services in the format that is sent via email. Any specific details about your proposal may be submitted via email along with our bid form.

If you are committed to meeting these requirements, please complete the Trade Contract Referral Application and send via email to

The qualification process may take up to 4 weeks depending on your referenced builders response
