Good morning. Here is our response to your FoI request of 5th June 2015. We apologise for the delay in replying to you.

We are unable to provide specific details of the value of our current window cleaning contracts and the firm who hold the contract, since this would require that we reveal commercially sensitive information about a third party.

The contract next comes up for tender in April 2016 and we would be happy to consider bids from any company interested in the contract. At that time we will be able to provide full details about the size and scope of the services we require. The person to contact is Mr. Graeme Kiloh, Premises Manager. The college address and phone number are below.

If your concern is about efficient use of public funds then I can assure you that the process by which procurement contracts are awarded, reviewed and renewed is audited regularly and that audit findings are scrutinised and acted on by our Governing Body. The minutes of the Audit Committee are published on the Governance section of our web site.
