New Facilities Management Contracting Model: Update

The Crown Commercial Services (formerly GPS) Building and Engineering Maintenance Service framework is live until October 2014, however renewal work is already underway.

The new Facilities Management Contracting Model (FMCM) will provide an innovative and extensive contracting vehicle giving customers access to a range of specific services including total facilities management, hard FM and soft FM services such as cleaning, security, waste management and catering.

The new contracting vehicle will also include an FM Marketplace providing a quick and efficient route to market for low value contracts, allowing a large number of providers, from SMEs to multi-national organisations, to participate by following a basic pre-approved supplier approach.

This new approach supports the Government’s vision of an efficient, fit for purpose and sustainable 'estate' that delivers value for money and facilitates flexible working. It is a key element of the commercial reform programme and will be the primary route for suppliers to provide FM services to government and wider public sector.

Further information on the new framework can be found here.

LPP will be working closely with GPS as part of the renewal and will be posting updates on our website, so please keep an eye on these to ensure you are kept up to date with opportunities.

Please contact if you have any further queries.
