Savings

Under the terms of the agreement, the maximum rates are fixed for two years from the start of the agreement. The supplier is also required to deliver an additional year on year efficiency saving percentage as detailed in the maximum framework rates which can be found on our Sourcing tool.

To demonstrate cash savings associated with use of the agreement, rates achieved via the agreement are compared with actual rates paid by customers on the open market (i.e. open full-OJEU procurement) for the 2014/15 period.

Savings are anticipated to be in the region of 20%.

Background

This agreement was developed as part of the centralised Facilities Management Contracting Model (FMCM). Formerly lot 4 of the Facilities Management Services agreement, it was later decided that this service should be provided through a separate agreement.

The intention was to enable customers to aggregate management of their FM suppliers whilst at the same time providing one perspective of the FM services being received across the estate.

The agreement seeks to reduce costs by providing intuitive and bespoke reporting using intelligent software.

The framework and service specification are a result of a collaborative relationship with the Home Office, who was a key stakeholder in the development of this agreement. As a current user of an independent assurance service, the Home Office was able to support the procurement, providing detailed input into the framework terms and service specification.

A PIN notice was issued in October 2014 to inform potential providers of the imminent publication of the bidding opportunity and inviting them to express their interest. Supplier stakeholders were updated notified of the publication of the OJEU notice in June 2015.

Bidders were subject to stringent financial checks and were required to ensure the financial viability of all appointed bidders.

Evaluation of award question responses was performed by stakeholders from the Home Office and Ministry of Justice.
