Block Cleaning and Concierge Contract 2021

Resident Services has radically redesigned its repair and maintenance services which, amongst Block Cleaning and Concierge other things, will see the current estate cleaning service split in two:

a) External estate-based cleaning will be subsumed into Environment’s new Waste Collection and Street Cleansing contract commencing 1 October 2021.

b) Block-based cleaning and concierge (including hostels) will be delivered under a borough-wide long-term contract - again commencing 1 October 2021. This report considers the procurement routes for procuring this contract

To approve an OJEU-compliant restricted procurement of a borough-wide block cleaning and concierge contract for 6 years with two allowable extensions of 4 years (6 + 4 + 4): - 01 October 2021 to 30 September 2027 (extendable to 2035) - to achieve service continuity after expiry of the interim contract. This aligns with the date that the external cleaning elements are being subsumed into the new Waste Collection and Street Cleansing Contract (which also have a term of 6 + 4 + 4).

The estimated contract cost is £6,317,500 per year based on current contract costs.

The purpose of the procurement is to secure a borough wide block cleaning and concierge contract to maintain service continuity; and which will run alongside the Waste and Street Cleaning contract commencing 1 October 2021.
