Project Summary:

In April 2010 we were asked to project manage the market testing for a wide range of cleaning and housekeeping services(outsourcing project) at this PFI. (29,000m2, 250 beds). The Trust was very active in the development of various specifications. We produced a fully coordinated suite of documents including tender documents and an SPV. The contract was successfully tendered and started in April 2011.


The services covered by this market testing included; daily clinical and general cleaning of areas, reactive cleaning, periodic cleaning and window cleaning. The process included updating the specification from its original base on the National Specifications for Cleanliness in the NHS (2003) to (2007).

Market Testing Process

The tender was based on a sub-contractor step down of the original PFI Facilities Services Agreement. An additional roll-up of all the variations to the contract was also included in the process. Including; cleaning services to the operating theatres and additional deep cleaning teams.
