Departments are legally responsible for ensuring a clean working environment. The Estates Services FM team have negotiated contracts with several cleaning companies ensuring they deliver value for money and meet minimum acceptable standards.

The University has 3 established preferred suppliers which deliver 75% of the University’s cleaning requirement:

These suppliers have signed contracts with the University and agreed rates. Rates for consumables have also been agreed.
