The tender project is seeking to appoint a contractor whose initiative and innovation will be welcomed for the provision of cleaning services within the facilities for the school. The high quality service levels proposed, should maintain excellent standards throughout, resulting in a pleasant environment for both the students and staff.

The basis and rationale that the client requires the successful contractor to operate to at all times, is being able to provide an environment that is fit for purpose and that the contractor is proactive in the management of the contract, thus ensuring that all specifications are achieved and that the frequency of cleans is as detailed within the tender specification.

It should be noted that the successful contractor will be expected to bring to the contract: innovation; new equipment; and cleaning methods, with BICSc standards being achieved as a minimum, thus ensuring that the highest levels of cleanliness are maintained in all areas at all times and also ensuring that the productivity of the cleaning operatives is enhanced moving forward into the new contract term.

The value of the current cleaning contract is circa 120 000,00 GBP + VAT.

At present 19 cleaning operatives (18 operatives on the evening shift and 3 operatives on the morning shift, 2 working both shifts) are employed to work between the hours of 7:00 — 9:00 and 15:30 — 17:30, Monday to Friday, with 1 operative working from 9:30 — 17:30, and 1 from 14:00 — 17:30. The contract supervisor undertakes non-cleaning duties, totalling 25 hours per week, which is included in the total of 237 hours per week. Full or partial area cleaning is required for 42 weeks.

The schools objectives:

— to build upon the standards of cleanliness within the school,

— to receive a service that complies with the service standards,

— to receive consistently high quality cleaning standards, via a motivated and fully staffed workforce,

— to generate an improved learning environment for all students, within the School,

— to receive pro-active management support for the cleaning staff,

— to hold regular review meetings with the successful contractor.
