Supplier Panels

Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities engages with suppliers on various panels to procure works and services to undertake the build program and maintenance activities on existing properties.

The pre-qualification of these suppliers is based on the following factors:

  • Evidencing capability, track record and capacity to provide the works or services suited to specific scope  
  • Evidence of requisite levels of Insurance and Health & Safety requirements
  • Accepting terms and conditions of specific contract types

As part of our focus on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our residential construction program we will regularly review all existing panels to efficiently deliver growing volumes of work.
