Description

The successful supplier will be required to provide cleaning services for The Chelmsford Learning Partnership.

The successful supplier will be required to provide cleaning services at the Trust’s participating schools.

Barnes Farm Infant and Junior Schools.

The Beaulieu Park School.

The Boswells School.

Roding Valley High School.

Detailed information for each school may be found via the website at www.CLPTrust.com

Contract value is estimated at 480 000 GBP as some sites are still building up to full occupancy.

Client objectives:

1) The client is looking for a fixed price contract cost to the multi academy;

2) The client is now seeking proposals to maintain and/or improve the cleaning services while remaining cost effective and affective for the entire Trust’s community.

The contract being tendered is for 36 months in duration from the commencement on 6.4.2020.

The contract is fixed price with the supplier invoicing the client for one-twelfth of the annual cost on a monthly basis. Any variations to the contract that are requested by the client should be invoiced at the agreed rate and should be calculated on an hourly rate per employee needed to carry out the variation to the satisfaction of the contract supervising officer.

Whilst the monthly charge will represent one-twelfth of the contract cost, a reconciliation will take place monthly to reconcile the actual hours worked within the contract. If the hours worked are less than those budgeted for a credit will be required by the client. The client requires that the tendered amount of hours are worked at all times.

The basis and rationale that the client requires the successful supplier to operate to at all times is being able to provide clean schools that are fit for purpose and that the supplier is proactive in the management of the contract.
