Total facilities management provider OCS has won a five year contract (with an option of a two year extension) with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to provide total facilities management at six locations across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
The deal with the global accountancy body includes hard services, reprographics, security, cleaning, catering, visitor services and helpdesk. OCS will self-deliver more than 90 per cent of the services.
ACCA had previously outsourced its cleaning, security, hard services and catering to multiple service providers with front-of-house and reprographics services remaining in-house. Under the new contract OCS is introducing a facilities helpdesk and a CAFM system to increase the efficiency of the FM team.
