BIFM’s Procurement Special Interest Group (SIG) has published a new guidance note to help facilities management companies understand statutory compliance across procurement projects. Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) is actively supporting these guidelines by ensuring that the recommendations are fully integrated into the business, continuing its efforts to strive for best practice at all times.

The BIFM SIG supports the organisation’s members by producing such guidance notes and good practice guides, sharing knowledge and debating best practice in order to help drive the FM industry forward.

This compliance document highlights key information facilities managers need to understand in the procurement process, to ensure that all facilities and FM supply chain facilities remain statutorily compliant in areas such as legislation and resource management.

PTSG has always aimed to help make procurement for its FM clients simple and more reliable, and achieves this by offering a wide range of niche specialist services ‘under one roof’. This unique approach to bundling services reduces costs within the supply chain and streamlines the procurement process, enabling works to be carried out more quickly and to a higher standard – as well as saving clients the time, effort and cost of procuring each service separately.

As part of its operating model PTSG invests heavily in the training and development of its teams in all aspects of best practice, to make sure they are always inspired and equipped with the skills they need to provide the outstanding service the company name has become synonymous with.

In its short 10-year history, the Group has received more than 120 individual accreditations from a host of bodies, covering all matters of health and safety, staff engagement, employability and sustainability.

The company has also been recognised for its outstanding commitment to safety with the award of a Gold Medal at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2017. The relentless pursuit of excellence in workplace health and safety has also seen it receive six consecutive International Safety Awards from the British Council.

Peter Brogan, BIFM Research and Information Manager said: “FM professionals can use this Guidance Note as a reference point for their work within procurement supply chain management and to ensure they are compliant with industry guidelines. What’s more, this publication can also help FM professionals achieve great results across their existing procurement process, by following industry advice about better investment and resource management.”
