College, university, academy and school cleaning services are fundamental in the education sector yet buying building cleaning services can often be one of the most complex areas of procurement.

Using this agreement you can procure an outsource cleaning service and design it to best meet the needs of your institution. It will save you time as you won’t need to complete a full tender process and it provides regional and national competition to secure value for money.

Cleaning services include but not limited to:

  • Term time cleaning
  • Non-term time cleaning
  • Deep / periodic cleaning
  • One off cleaning
  • High-level cleaning
  • Janitorial services
  • Caretaking services
  • Washroom consumables provision
  • Feminine hygiene services
  • Window cleaning

"I have recently carried out a cleaning tender via CPC and have been extremely impressed with the whole process. The support from the Contract Manager has been first class and he has supported me throughout, providing technical assistance as required with the tendering documentation and timelines. The portal itself if easy to navigate and I have not encountered any issues."
