Torfield & Saxon Mount Academy Trust
Procurement of a new cleaning service
Torfield and Saxon Mount Academy Trust sought the help of Schools’ Buying Club with their cleaning tender. Their previous service was very understaffed with long term absence across the sites. Under the new contract, the cleaning hours have increased as well as the number of staff members on site, spreading the hours more equally between staff and improving the quality of the service.
“Schools’ Buying Club removed much of the stress from what is a prolonged and bureaucratic process and provided a fantastic and friendly service in making introductions, arranging site visits and keeping all parties on track and to the timeline. When making a decision, it was also really reassuring for us to know that we were in agreement with someone who had far more experience in this field than we did. We also get a monitoring service moving forwards, which again is a further reassurance for our schools. Thank you very much Schools Buying Club.” Director of Finance, Resources and Operational Strategy
