As a general contractor with BC Pro, if a subcontractor asks to be removed from your bid list or you no longer wish to work with a company, you can add them to your “Do Not Use” list.
To do so, click on your company page (and office if applicable), then click the “Do Not Use List" tab.
Click the orange “+ Add companies” button, to search for companies to add.
Once you locate the company you’d like to block from receiving bid invitations, click the “+ Add to list” button on the right-hand side.
Once a company is added to your “Do Not Use” list, a note appears next to the company to signify when they were added and by whom. The company will also be blocked from your company’s network so they will no longer appear when you or a coworker searches for bidders to invite to projects.
Companies can be removed from your “Do Not Use” list at any time by clicking the small “x” under the “Remove” column. Once a company is removed, they will be automatically added back into your company’s network so they can be invited to future projects.
Please note that “Do Not Use” lists work on an office by office basis. Thus, if you wish to block a subcontractor from working with all offices within your company, you must add them to each office’s “Do Not Use” list.
Subcontractors will not receive a notification when they are added or removed from your “Do Not Use” list.
Project access when subcontractors are added to your “Do Not Use” list
Once a subcontractor is added to your “Do Not Use” list, they may still have access to projects they were previously invited to. Please note the following instances:
- If a subcontractor has been invited to bid on a project before they have been added to your “Do Not Use” list, the project will still appear on their Bid Board and they will be able to submit a bid.
- If a subcontractor has submitted a bid prior to being added to your “Do Not Use” list, their bid will remain submitted and they will still have access to project information, files, and messages.
If you wish to remove subcontractors from any current or past projects so they are unable to submit bids or access project information, please follow the instructions outlined in the article, “How general contractors can remove bidders from projects.”
