This Week's Highlight - Government Cleaning Contracts

In the same way that IT hardware and software systems are required by every department and government agency, so too is the requirement for a commercial cleaner. These opportunities vary in their scope and duration but they are frequent on both the Commonwealth and state level and are worth consideration.

Unlike a domestic cleaning task, or some private commercial cleaning contracts, bidding for a government cleaning contract will require a company to have established and sometimes certified systems for Work, Health and Safety (WHS) and Quality. Furthermore, a company will also be required to consider environment sustainability in its methods and products of choice. These systems will need to be documented and your proposal will need to demonstrate their application. So while definitely worth considering, a government cleaning contract requires some level of prior experience and maturity of systems and procedures.

One such opportunity is this week’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s (CASA) Request for Tender (RFT) for a National Cleaning Washroom and Hygiene Service. This service will be required at CASA offices located in Darwin, Cairns, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra and Tamworth with the ideal bidder being one that can service all locations (note this is not a requirement – just a preference). To assist with scoping, site vists are being held at all sites except Tamworth and are while not mandatory are highly recommended and will assist with tailoring your proposal.

From the specified evaluation criteria, it is clear that CASA are looking for a company with experience in similar sized contracts, and a depth of staffing to ensure service continuity. Furthermore, in addition to the standard policies and procedures mentioned above, CASA will require Police criminal records checks for all employees assigned to this contract.

The RFT closes 16 July 18 with an anticipated contract start by September 2018. The contract term is three years with options for extension.
