Operation, maintenance and training (OMT)
Operation, maintenance and training (OMT) is a form of facilities management contract that can be adopted when organisations are appointed to establish and manage the operation and maintenance of facilities for a period of time, typically after completion.
Under an OMT contract, the provider typically operates the facility, performs routine and non-routine maintenance and also provides training in the operation and maintenance of the facility until the role can be handed over to the employer. This might include recruiting and training personnel and establishing a suitable organisational structure.
