FM Review Update - March 2020

​​​An update on estate maintenance, security and cleaning.​

Estate Maintenance – Mobilisation of the Estates Maintenance contract between the University of London and Salisbury Group has commenced and contract mechanisms as well as collaborative working principles are being developed.

The change programme to embed new ways of working within the new contract has been agreed between both parties.

It is expected that the outcome from the new contract will be a service that delivers high quality, best value and market expertise which will embrace technology and innovation; all in accordance with required building condition works, statutory compliance and best practice. Importantly, the service will need to ensure long term financial and human resource sustainability.  

Security – We are on track to bring security staff in-house in May 2020. The TUPE process requirements and exact timeline are currently being finalised. We continue to work on the security strategy that will inform our new security service into the future.           

Cleaning – Preparation work has been started to bring cleaning staff in-house by November 2020.
