Successful retender for 32 educational sites in London Borough of Merton.
In April 2014, Julius Rutherfoord was successfully re-appointed as contract cleaning provider for 32 educational sites within the London Borough of Merton.
Having originally won the contract in 2008, we were confident that our proven track record and attentive contract management would help in our bid to re-tender however, the tender process was thorough and competitive, and we are very pleased to have been successful for a second term.
The contract for provision of cleaning services comprises: Daily Cleaning of the Schools & Offices during term time – 5 days a week; Window Cleaning internally and externally 2 times per annum; and Periodic Cleaning 3 times per annum for 24 Primary Schools, 1 Crèche, 3 High Schools, 3 Day Centres and 1 Office.
This significant contract retender, along with a similar existing contract with the London Borough of Harrow, not only reinforces Julius Rutherfoord’s position as a specialist cleaning contractor for London’s education sector, but also demonstrates our ability to deliver high levels of client satisfaction and client retention.
The original contract in 2008 involved the transfer of many staff to Julius Rutherfoord via the TUPE framework, including the current Area Manager. It is this continuity of service and rapport, along with consistently high standards of service delivery that we believe helped Julius Rutherfoord to successfully retain this business.
The new contract is for a period of 3 years with the possibility of extending by a further 2 years.
