RBKC launches scheme to support borough’s suppliers


Kensington and Chelsea has launched a two-year project to help local trade businesses bid for work with large developers and property owners.

The project, called RBKC Supply Chain, is open to suppliers in property and construction trades and will be run by the borough council together with a London consulting firm. The council itself will be a buyer in the scheme to source subcontractors for local projects.

Along with introducing local suppliers to buyers, the free programme includes a diagnostic review of a business and its credentials, plus guidance on how the business can maximise its potential and networking opportunities.

RBKC previously ran a yearlong pilot of the supply chain scheme and saw almost 100 SMEs and 11 developers involved, according to a borough press release. About 45 local suppliers were put forward for 75 opportunities and 11 invitations to tender as a result.
