Management of Corporate Estates and Maintenance

The request was successful.

Dear Solihull College and University Centre,

I would be most grateful if you would provide me, under the Freedom of Information Act, the following information regarding your facilities management approach:
• How are facilities management services (hard FM, soft FM or TFM) handled across your estates?
- If any services are outsourced, which services and to which suppliers?
- What are the start dates and durations of these contracts, including the end date, and which services are included in each?
- What are the values of the contracts?
- Is there an extension clause in the contract(s) and if so, what is the duration of the extension?
- Has a decision been made yet on whether the contract(s) are being either extended or renewed?
- What is the job title of the senior officer (outside of procurement) responsible for the contract(s)?
• Do you utilise any outsourced helpdesk or FM integrator services? If so, with which supplier(s)?
• Which software solution(s) are used to manage your corporate property/assets including facilities management (CAFM)?

Yours faithfully,

Gina George

Thank you for the request made under the Freedom of Information Act on 14
May 2024.

 

Please could you be more specific about which areas you require the
information about? The request as it is currently worded is very far
reaching and would involve a significant amount of work for the college as
we have many suppliers providing different facilities services. Our
Estates team looks after everything from bathroom supplies to the building
fabric and everything in between.

 

Please get in touch if there is anything about our clarification request
which is unclear.

 

Many thanks.

Dear Sian Moxon (Staff),

Many thanks for your response. To clarify the request;

How are facilities management services (hard FM, soft FM or TFM) handled across your campus(es)?
HFM - (HVAC + fire safety)
SFM - (Waste management, Cleaning, Security)
TFM (TOTAL facilities maintenance) - (if applicable, all the above)
- Is this an inhouse service provided by your university or an outsourced service?
- if it is outsourced - if possible, could I please get the start dates and durations of these contracts, including the end date, and which services are included in each?

Yours sincerely,

Gina George
