Tender information:

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

The basis and rationale that the client requires the successful supplier to operate to at all times is being able to provide a school that is fit-for-purpose and that the supplier 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.

The contract being tendered is for 3 years in duration from 1.5.2020 until 30.4.2023, with the option to extend upon agreement with the client for a further 2-year period. The contract will be fixed price in nature, with the supplier invoicing the client for one-twelfth of the annual cost on a monthly basis.

It should be noted that the successful supplier 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.

Current cleaning arrangement:

At present there are 12 cleaning staff employed at the academy where the structure is:

— 1 working supervisor,

— 10 cleaning operatives,

— 1 day-cleaner present in school during the day.

The current incumbent contractor is Enterprise Support Services UK Ltd.

There are no incumbent members of cleaning staff who are members of the LGPS.

Please be advised that the Trust has a minimum requirement for a suppliers’ employers’ liability/public liability and professional indemnity insurance of 5 000 000 000 GBP.
