Our Contractor onboarding process ensures that we have an opportunity to learn more about your company, skillset, and capacity, and for you to learn more about our values, projects, and requirements. The goal is to assess whether you are a good fit to work with us. Click on each stage of the process below to learn more.
*Note: Signing a Contract with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia does NOT guarantee work on a project, nor commit you to a price point. It does, however, affirm a working relationship and provides a greater opportunity to work alongside us.
This form allows you to share some basic information about your company. Please share as much detail as possible, as it provides important context for the initial screening.Expression of Interest Form
A Habitat staff member will reach out to conduct an initial phone screening. This will be an opportunity for us to learn more about your company, and for you to ask any further questions. Additionally, we will go over the documentation requirements for our contracts.
Habitat staff will relay the information collected in the EOI form and initial screening to the Project Managers. We will have a conversation to determine whether your company will be a good fit based on our project-based needs moving forward. If this determination is made, we will reach out to your provided references.
If we decide to move forward, we will share a sample version of our contract, along with our documentation requirements (see next step). Our standard 1-year master contract outlines the terms, conditions, and requirements for your work with us. As projects arise, we then add the scopes of work as addendums to the end of the master contract.
Required Documentation & Information:
In some instances, though not in every case, we will connect you with a project manager to do a site tour before getting you under contract. Ultimately, you will be working directly with them, so it is important to establish a positive relationship with them. During this visit, you can examine the scope of work, assess whether it fits with your capabilities and comfortabilities, and ask any lingering questions about the specific projects.
Once we have all of the necessary information from you, we will prep the contract. We ask that you allow two weeks for this to occur. We will then share the contract for you to sign electronically.
Once we have you under contract, this does not guarantee that there will be specific project-based work with us. It does, however, affirm that we have a relationship and all of the documentation we need to easily process bids and have you dive into a project if we decide to go with your company. You can see all of our active RFPs on this site. The contract is a great starting point, and gives you a leg up over other trades who are not yet under contract with us.
