Contact procurement

If you have any general questions about any aspect of the procurement process email

Any tender enquiries or queries about your submission must go through the Kent Business Portal.

We can't accept:

  • tenders after the closing date/time
  • telephone enquiries (unless specifically invited)
  • lobbying for information from elected members or officers involved.

We promise to treat each supplier, prospective supplier and enquirer with fairness and respect. We follow a fully auditable process that complies with public procurement legislation and will give feedback to unsuccessful bidders upon request.

All members of our procurement team have either obtained or are working towards MCIPS (Member of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply).

The KCC Procurement team are committed to helping Kent businesses grow, and we have achieved the target of 60% of our first tier (direct contractors) and second tier (sub-contractors) business being with Kent based businesses by value.
