University of Westminster enrols Sitemark for procurement support

Sitemark has been chosen by the University of Westminster to support its procurement of cleaning services across its London estate.

The multi-milllion pound contract will cover four main campuses, including both academic and residential buildings, which service more than 19,000 students and staff.

The procurement exercise follows best practice benchmarking which identified a number of initiatives that will allow the university to continue to develop a partnership approach to its cleaning services. It is looking to drive a continuous improvement focus throughout the new contract term to further enhance the student experience and improve the environment that all users live and work in.

As part of the contract terms, Sitemark will use its independent assessment of almost 300 FM providers to help the University identify the contract requirements that most closely meet its specific needs. This will allow the University to distinguish between those service providers that deliver a good pitch and those that have been proven to deliver consistently efficient and effective results.

Mike Boxall, Managing Director at Sitemark, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting the University of Westminster in fulfilling this extensive contract. The focus is very much on working with a partner to deliver an innovative, sustainable and best in class cleaning service and we are excited to be helping the team understand more about how to meet their requirements cost-effectively and efficiently. 

“Our experience allows us to draw from our work at over 40 other UK university sites where we have helped both client and service provider implement best practice methodology.”
