Facilities Management Services Contracts

Meeting: 21/03/2012 - Cabinet Capital Assets Committee (Item 17)

17 Facilities Management Services Contracts

To consider the attached Executive Summary report of the Corporate Director (Transformation and Resources).


Supporting documents:


Cllr John Noeken, Cabinet Member for Resources, introduced the executive summary report, which set out arrangements for the procurement of Facilities Management Services Contracts, and sought authority for the Cabinet Member to use delegated powers to award the contracts following the satisfactory conclusion of the formal tendering processes.  It was anticipated that the new contracts would be in place and operational in time for the occupation of the refurbished MECH building at the end of the Summer.


Concern was raised that, when arranging the TUPE of staff to new contractors, experience and knowledge of buildings should be retained wherever possible.




That Cabinet (Capital Assets) Committee authorises the Cabinet Member for Resources to use delegated authority to award Facilities Management Service Contracts for Cleaning, Security and Keyholding and Catering, following the satisfactory conclusion of the formal tendering processes.


Reasons for Decision


To put in place the means to consistently and cost-effectively manage the Council’s built facilities over a period of significant change in both service levels and occupied properties, and to support the timescale for the procurement process.
