CCS launches FM Marketplace framework

12 July 2018

The launch of the Facilities Management Marketplace agreement by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has been confirmed.

Designed to provide the public sector access to a range of suppliers of FM services, 47 companies have been awarded places on the scheme to date.

These are spread across three lots and include 10 SME businesses, as the CCS looks to attract more smaller companies to the public sector list of suppliers.

The scheme includes expenditure of up to £12bn over the next four years and is also expected to save up to 10% on the cost of service procurement.

One of the requirements of the framework allows clients to ask suppliers to demonstrate social value and what this means to their organisation.

It is the first agreement to use the CCS new Public Sector Contract, designed to make application for government contracts easier.

With cleaning, maintenance, security and catering featuring within the framework, a second phase is currently being developed.

Workplace Services (RM6089) will feature placement of agreements for service providers of aspects such as security, housing maintenance and defence, said the CCS statement.
