Description About the Opportunity:
As part of the London Borough of Haringey’s (“the Council”) accommodation strategy, buildings owned or managed by the Council may become vacant. This poses problems from a security standpoint, namely the possibility of squatters moving into vacant premises.

The Council therefore requires vacant buildings to be secured. Traditionally the Council has used manned security guarding to secure its buildings. However, a move toward the use of building guardians in order to secure properties has been in recent times, and has been found to be more cost-effective than traditional security guarding services.

Haringey Council wishes to procure a framework agreement for the provision of building guardian services in order to provide a method of selecting companies to provide the service.
