Dear Freya Large,


I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 5^th
July 2022.


For ease of reference, I have reproduced your questions below and set out
our corresponding responses.


I would like to enquire how Cardiff Uni procures sub-contractors for
building management for BMS.

Generally, suppliers wishing to become suppliers of goods and services to
Cardiff University should request appropriate qualified vendor application
forms and apply to become same through Cardiff University Finance /
Procurement departments, where applications will be considered and
progressed / rejected subject to their scrutiny and consultation.


For procurement of its contracts, the University in general, advertises
and invites tender submissions in response to detailed specifications of
works as provided, through market competed processes in accordance with
public sector rules, as undertaken through its procurement department.


How much a year they spend

Assuming this element of the query pertains to BeMS System related
service, support and spares for BeMS related and associated Building
Service Control Systems (numerous), for the 12 Month period June-21
through June-22, the total sum would be £412,816.70


And also who is their current provider for maintenance.

Again, assuming the question relates specifically to BeMS related service
and support. Cardiff University has various service providers for BeMS
service and support, these are presently:

• Trend Advance
• Exact BMS


I trust this information satisfies your enquiry.  Should you feel
dissatisfied with this response or the way in which your request was
handled you can request an Internal Review. This should be made in writing
within 40 working days of the date of this email. Please provide your
unique reference number of your request, information on why you are
dissatisfied and any detail you would like us to consider as part of the
Internal Review process. Email your request to
[1][email address] where it will be forwarded to the Head of
Compliance and Risk who will be responsible for overseeing the review.


If you remain dissatisfied following the outcome, you have the right to
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for consideration.  The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at the following address:
Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Cardiff University. If you require further assistance, please feel free to
