Works for the housing association will be spread across locations in the south from Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire to Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
Some £70m will spent on small contracts each worth up to £1.5m, jobs worth up to £5m are expected to account for a further £120m with £110m earmarked for bigger new building projects.
David Keeling, Executive Director for development and property at BPHA said: “We undertook a rigorous process with some of our residents who volunteered to help select our new contractors.
The housing association, which manages around 16,000 homes, is expected to reveal the winners of its housing repair and maintenance framework in the next month.
Procurement chiefs decided to end a long association with contractor DSD to open repairs works to several firms.
