Renewal Information for Certificates of Authorization

Businesses must renew their Kansas Certificate of Authorization every two years to avoid expiration and/or cancellation.
Each Certificate a business holds needs renewed separately by the Principal in responsible charge. 

Business names beginning with letters A-L renew in even-numbered years and business names beginning with letters M-Z renew in odd-numbered years. Each renewal period allows 60 days to renew before certificate expiration and then an additional 60 day grace period before certificate cancellation. A business may not offer to practice/ make any bids with an expired or cancelled certificate.

Yearly Renewal Period: November 2nd to December 31st 
Grace Period: January 1st to March 1st

To renew by paper: 

  • Print the paper renewal form and mail to our Board office with a check or money order for $95.00. The current Principal in responsible charge for your Certificate of Authorization must sign the renewal form for it to be processed; if you need to update your Principal in responsible charge submit a Principal in Responsible Charge Change Form along with your renewal and they will be processed simultaneously.
