Become an approved contractor

We have a list of approved contractors who we use to carry out work on sites owned by us.

We will be procuring a new minor works framework this financial year which is expected to consist of various lots such as general building, mechanical and electrical and roofing. As a result, the current contractor list will be closed when the new framework becomes operational. Therefore we are not be accepting any new applications from suppliers to join the list.

When the new minor works framework procurement commences, we will notify the market via the Kent Business Portal and via this webpage.
