Important Information regarding Contract Procurement Consultants

Tags : 

FM Contract Solutions are an Independent Contract Procurement Consultant Company specialising in Contract Engineering, Contract Performance Management and Consultancy for Soft Service Contracts including Cleaning, Waste Services, Security, Laundry and Housekeeping.  Our team have been providing leading edge professional procurement consultancy in the Facility Management Industry for over 16 years.

There are Companies operating in the procurement consultancy sphere that are owned, funded and/or managed by Facility Service providers that are advertising similar services for Facility Managers.  With these direct or indirect tie-ins to Service providers there is a potential conflict of interest, especially in the preparation and evaluation of Public or Private Sector Tenders.

FM Contract Solutions recommends that prospective clients ask these questions of all procurement consultants before engaging consultants to provide these services.

  1. Is the prospective Supplier of Procurement Services owned or partly owned by a company providing contracted Cleaning, Waste, Security or Sanitary Services?
  2. Are any Consultants employed or engaged by the prospective consultancy provider current employees, owners, in a management role or major shareholders of companies that provide contracted Cleaning, Waste, Security or Sanitary Services?
  3. Are any of the investors, Directors, shareholders or partners in the prospective consultancy provider current employees, owners, in a management role or major shareholders of companies that provide contracted Cleaning, Waste, Security or Sanitary Services?
  4. Does the prospective consultancy provider receive a commission, incentive or payment of any sort for the handover of contract leads or recommendation of companies that provide contracted Cleaning, Waste, Security or Sanitary Services?

It is also recommended that customers seek independent confirmation of a consultant’s employment status and background experience in these industries through client references and Social Media such as LinkedIn to confirm the experience, business status and independence of a Contract Procurement Consultant and Partners Agencies prior to considering engagement.
