College Highly Recommends Use of CPC Building Cleaning Services Framework

Leeds College of Art

The Background

Leeds College of Art, an institution celebrating 170 years of leading the way as a centre for art and design education, is one of only a few independent art schools in the UK, and will soon be the only specialist arts university in the North of England.

The College were looking to achieve greater value for money by using the CPC Building Cleaning Services framework with the support of our Regional Procurement Advisor (RPA) Linda Carney.

The Process

Linda provided one-to-one support, including advice and guidance on EU regulations which helped the College to gain confidence in accessing and utilising CPC frameworks.

Facilities Manager, Corina Kettlewell said: “Linda was available throughout the whole process to assist with the procurement, which included the initial meeting, review of our tender documents as well as assistance with the In-Tend portal for uploading and responding to queries and the evaluation process.”

She added: “We are confident that this process has met the requirements of our financial regulations and would be happy to use CPC again for future procurement exercises.”

The Outcome

Thanks to Linda’s guidance Corina said: “We have a support network for procurement and advice on matters for our tenders with the CPC.”

Speaking about the framework and the RPA services she said: “We would highly recommend the use of the CPC Cleaning framework. The process was fully supported by the RPA, as well as being quick and free for the College to use.”
