Janitorial services

Caretaking services

Washroom consumables provision

"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."
