The CPC’s Total Facilities Management (TFM) Framework covers an extensive range of services to help your institution to streamline its operations by providing a one stop shop and single point of contact for all your service needs. Each supplier is able to provide a complete Facilities Management (FM) package for your institution as follows:

Major services:

  • Building cleaning services
  • Mechanical, electrical and building fabric maintenance services
  • Catering services
  • Manned guarding services

Minor services:

  • Waste management services
  • Grounds maintenance
  • Estates management
  • Additional services (reception, postal, energy, water)

Users will be able to call off as a minimum two of the Major services listed above in one TFM contract but are encouraged to utilise as many of the services available as possible.

The framework agreement is split into 13 regional lots and each supplier has passed the selection and award stages of the tender exercise offering an EU compliant route to market.
