We use approved lists of contractors for the following areas:
Small, general building maintenance works, up to £25k
Building and Civil Engineering works, over £25k
Our application process ensures that the contractors we use:
Are suitably qualified to undertake the works required
Have processes that comply with our policies on health and safety and equal opportunities
Have the financial and technical capabilities required
We manage the approved list up to £25k.
However, this process is being reviewed and we are currently unable to accept requests from suppliers to be added to this list.
We have simplified the application process to join our Approved List for Building & Civil Engineering Works for contract values over £25k and below the OJEU threshold.
Inclusion on an approved list will not by itself guarantee work. You may be invited to submit a quote or tender for a contract to deliver works or services to us, and you should be aware that further information may be required as part of that process.
Companies are subject to suspension and/or removal from the list should it be found that they do not continue to fulfil the criteria as outlined in the application process.
We do not hold any other approved lists.
Doing business with us explains how, what and when we buy, and provides details of how to register to become a prospective supplier to us.
