Maintenance contracts - a guide to best practice for procurement
BSRIA is a non-profit distributing, member-based association, providing specialist services in construction and building services. In November 2016, BSRIA published BG66/2016 Maintenance Contracts: A guide to best practice for procurement.
This publication explains what is involved at each stage in the maintenance procurement process, as well as providing a clear guide to minimising risks and ensuring that value for money is being achieved.
It covers the development of contracts and specifications for maintenance, the tendering process, and monitoring and control. The guide promotes cutting-edge tender processes and procedures, and supports the development of contract documentation.
David Bleicher, Training & Publications Manager, said: “This guide is a general introduction to maintenance contracts and best practice for procurement. It explains how maintenance contracts should be let and what activities and methods can be used to achieve best practice with tendering. The guide emphasises the importance of building positive working relationships between the client and the facilities management contractor.”
