Description

Revisions to Implementation of Certificate Of Recognition (CORTM) Program For Metrolinx Construction Projects
 
Further to the communication issued to vendors, via MERX, on August 7, 2015, Metrolinx is revising CORTM requirements as follows:
 
In order for bids to be considered for any Metrolinx construction tender award, those vendors acting as General Contractors must achieve the following mandatory milestones by the dates indicated below:
 

  1. CORTM “Certified” status with IHSA as of the date of Closing for any construction procurements with an estimated value of $10 million and over, issued on or after October 1, 2016.
 
  1. CORTM “Registered” status with IHSA as of the date of Closing for any construction procurements with an estimated value under $10 million, issued on or after October 1, 2016.
  
  1. CORTM “Certified” status with IHSA as of the date of Closing for any construction procurements with an estimated value of $5 million and over, issued on or after January 1, 2017.
 
  1. CORTM “Certified” status with IHSA as of the date of Closing for any construction procurements regardless of estimated project value, issued on or after January 1, 2018.
  
Vendors unable to achieve the applicable CORTM status as per the timelines noted above, risk having their submissions deemed non-compliant and disqualified from the procurement process.
 
Please be reminded that CORTM certification benefits both owners and vendors in ensuring that construction contractors’ health and safety policies and programs adhere to the Occupational Health and Safety Act and regulations and are known by employers, supervisors and workers.
