Companies who wish to introduce themselves as prospective suppliers to the Authority can do so by sending brief details about themselves and the goods, services and/or works that they can supply to firstname.lastname@example.org
Employees of the Authority who wish to be considered as an independent supplier to the Authority must follow the same introductory process as all other prospective suppliers and will be subject to the same process for selection as all other prospective suppliers regarding transparency, fairness and competition.
Additionally, prospective suppliers can register on the Kent Business Portal in order to view any opportunities which become available.
Such introductions will be retained and as and when appropriate procurement opportunities become available, the prospective supplier may be contacted by the Authority.
All prospective suppliers should note that introductory information will be retained for not longer than 12 months. If no procurement opportunities arise during that 12 month period, prospective suppliers will not be contacted and their introductory details will be deleted.
The Authority does not hold a list of preferred suppliers for any spend category as each Procurement opportunity is considered on its own merits, based on published thresholds.
The Authority does not bind itself to respond to or to contact any prospective supplier following receipt of introductory information.
