The Trust is expected to grow in the number of schools during this contract period, and the provision of caretaking and cleaning services within these schools when they have joined the Trust will fall under the scope of this contract. The successful contractor will be expected to provide this service within these additional schools using the same costing model, ratios etc. that they applied to their successful tender submission for the Trust at the point of tender submission. The duration of contract for these schools will not be increased and they will join the contract for the remaining contract period that exists at the point of entry into the Trust.

Additionally, the Trust reserves the right to award in whole or part the final contract with no commitment that all schools listed above will form part of the final contract.
