The tender project is seeking to appoint a Supplier whose initiative and innovation will be welcomed for the provision of cleaning services within the facilities for Hodge Hill Girls' 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 Supplier to operate to at all times, is being able to provide an environment 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 three years in duration from 1.1.2018 until 31.12.2020, with the option to extend the contract term for a further period and 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. At present 10 cleaning operatives are employed to work 133 hours in total, Monday to Friday. The value of the current cleaning contract is circa 97 000 GBP + VAT. It is proposed that additional contracts are brought into the cleaning contract, including washroom services circa £2,400.00, washroom supplies circa 4 000 GBP and window cleaning twice per annum circa 1 500 GBP. Whilst the Client prioritises value for money as a key objective of the competitive tender process, the governing body is not obliged to accept the lowest price.
