II.2.4) Description of the procurement: This contract will be fixed price in nature with the successful Supplier guaranteeing both the number of input hours to the contract and the quality of cleaning provision.

The contract will commence on 1 January 2022 for an initial period of three years, ending on 31 December 2024, with the opportunity to extend for a further period of two years at the discretion of the governing body.

We are seeking a suitably experienced Supplier who has current experience of working within the primary or secondary school market place, ideally with a strong operational base within the Bristol area, thus allowing for both adequate contract support and operational flexibility that is to be delivered to support the contract as and when required moving forwards into this contract term.

The scope of the contract covers all cleaning provision within all school buildings. The successful Supplier will be expected to deliver a concise and detailed method of management reporting at the end of each month, thus updating the Trust and School senior management teams on the contract performance.

Any variations to the contract that are requested by the Client should be invoiced at the agreed rate and should be calculated on an hourly rate per employee needed to carry out the variation to the satisfaction of the contract supervising officer. The Client’s requirement shall be for 190 academic days, 5 inset days and 20 days periodic cleaning per annum.

NB: Through this tender process it is CSET’s intention to rationalise the number of cleaning weeks staff are contracted to work, to 43 weeks, i.e. 190 days term time cleaning, 5 inset days and 20 day deep cleaning. Currently Castle School cleaning staff contracts range from 52 weeks to 41 weeks, Mangotsfield and Severn Beach Schools are cleaned for 52 weeks. All other schools are currently contracted to 41 weeks cleaning. The HR capability and proposed detailed implementation methodology of the successful contractor requires evidencing.

Whilst the monthly charge will represent one-twelfth of the contract cost, a reconciliation will take place monthly to reconcile the actual hours worked within the contract. If the hours worked are less than those budgeted for a credit will be required by the Client.

The Client requires that the tendered amount of hours are worked at all times and the successful Supplier is expected to have a system in place to cover for both planned and unplanned leave.

The Supplier shall provide a comprehensive cleaning service to the Client so as to promote a clean, healthy and safe environment which presents a positive image to all users and visitors.

The schools must at all times meet health, safety and environmental standards appropriate to the schools and its use and the successful Supplier must comply with the Client’s health, safety and environmental policies and procedures. The services must be provided so as not to interrupt the routine of the schools.
The focus of our requirement is for a high quality cleaning service, fully compliant to the agreed specification at all times.

The projected cost of cleaning for the current year is circa £575K.

The focus of the requirement is equally for a high quality cleaning service, fully compliant to the agreed specification at all times.

Some Schools may require some caretaking support, however any requirement shall be negotiated after contract award with the successful contractor.
