It is good practise for clients to regularly benchmark and check that their FM services are providing their business with good value for money and there is a natural cycle of 5 years that should be used to measure both soft FM and hard FM services. It is widely recognised that the market experience knowledge and data sources of an FM specialist is essential when undertaking this exercise. Opex Consulting has an extensive FM cost database of both actual operational costs and industry cost metrics for undertaking this periodic review.
