Cleaning Contract - Outputs
Posted by rdingley (rdingley), 11 November 2003Hi
I am in the process of preparing a tender document for cleaning services to a large office; 60,000 sq ft.
Rather than include a lengthy cleaning specification (inputs) I would like to include the outputs.
Does anyone have knowledge of doing this and if so any assistance would be much appreciated?
Posted by Musicman (Musicman), 11 November 2003Hi Rupert, I have copies of output specifications if you would like me to fax them to you (well one anyway).
Let me have your fax number.
Personally, I find that once I have put a prescriptive specification together it only takes a few minutes to tweak the spec to each customers needs - thus being more time efficient.
What overall productivity are you applying?

Thank you in advance.
I don't understand your productivity question.
Posted by Musicman (Musicman), 11 November 2003Hi Rupert, I've sent the fax although you'll have to work out the order from the page numbers on the bottom (damn Gov't departments printing on both sides of the paper!).
I may have misunderstood your original post. Are you putting the tender out for companies to quote for, or are you tendering for the contract? I read it as the latter.
If you are tendering, the productivity is the amount of square feet an hour you expect your cleaners to achieve. For example, a 60,000 square feet building with 3,000 square feet per hour productivity works out at 20 cleaning hours.
If on the other hand you are asking other contractors to submit bids, what productivity levels would you be expecting them to achieve given that an output specification is vague?
