Procurement of a new, restructured and fit for purpose cleaning service
Kingsmead School wanted to restructure their cleaning service by moving the service from a predominately morning clean to the evening and introducing a new day-time janitor role to ensure general cleanliness is maintained during the day which had previously been a problem for the school.
Through a restricted OJEU procurement process, ran by Schools’ Buying Club, the school was able to achieve a fit for purpose cleaning service. The planned restructuring aims to spread the cleaning service across all hours of the day whilst also ensuring best value for money in terms of the cost. The tender process revised the cleaning service to fit around the after school and weekend lettings, ensuring the school is clean all week round. An improved attendance system was also implemented to enable better management of staff which was an issue previously.
“School Buying Club are an entirely seamless in their processes. The hassle-free approach really makes you feel that they are working with you, not just for you. I would highly recommend them to any school looking for renew their contracts and save costs.” Stephen Barrett, School Business Leader
