The Kenya Federation of Master Builders (KFMB) wishes to inform all Kenyan contractors registered with KFMB that their certificates are due for renewal.
KFMB has since 2004 been in the forefront in highlighting construction industry issues. It has successfully lobbied for acceptance of bid security and performance bonds issued by Insurance firms in the construction value chain thereby lowering the cost of bidding by contractors. KFMB also participated in the drafting of PPOA Act which has brought order in the procurement processes.
KFMB’s major achievement was among other stakeholders, the drafting and lobbying for the National Construction Authority Bill. The National Construction Authority has since been mandated to regulate and oversee the development of the construction industry.
The federation therefore requests all contractors to make the necessary payments for New Compliance Certificate for the year 2017. This will make it easier for them to update their records.
Payments should be done using the details provided below;
Annual Renewal Fee is Kshs. 3,000/=
