No, I’m not talking about pre-selection for the British Olympic team, I am referring to the PFM Partnership Awards 2012, the closing date for which is next week (31st May 2012).

Despite the sluggish economic there is plenty to applaud in the FM sector as entries for the PFM Awards 2012 demonstrate. Entries are still welcome, but time is running out...!

Now in their 19th year, the PFM Awards have always looked at the best in the FM sector. What better way to counter the economic doldrums than to focus on what your organisation does best – and possibly better than anyone else.

The PFM Awards are the most sought after Awards in the facilities management sector. They recognise best practice in partnering in facilities management and support services between service suppliers and their clients, as well as the skills and enterprise of people engaged in this sector. Previous entrants have said that entering these Awards has focused their teams on finding the positives of FM partnerships and made everyone involved aware of progress that had been achieved in FM partnerships with clients.

Entries close at the end of this month (31st May 2012) so there is still time to work with your partners on your entries, but time is running out! Full details on how to enter can be found on this website

A new category for 2012 is the Partners in Service to the Community Award that recognises the role of FM in directing and meeting community involvement in communities that their client’s business and facilities touch.

Some amendment and updating has been made on three other categories:
Partners in Workplace Change (formerly Partners in Business Change)
Partnership Team Member Award (formerly Partnering Excellence Award)
Peter Middup Lifetime Achievement in FM Award (formerly the Lifetime Achievement in FM Award).

The full list of categories for the PFM Awards 2012 is:
1. Partners in FM – corporate
2. Partners in FM – SME organisations
3. Partners in FM - Secure Facilities
4. Partners in Education FM
5. Partners in Public Access Facilities
6. Partners in Expert Services
7. Partners in Workplace Change
8. Partners in Service to the Community
9. Partners for Skills Development in FM
10. Partnership Team Member Award
11. FMA Young Manager of the Year
12. The Peter Middup Lifetime Achievement in FM Award
13. Overall PFM Awards 2012
