One stop shop solution for Total Facilities Management (TFM)

One stop shop solution for Total Facilities Management (TFM)

A Total Facilities Management (TFM) solution for your organisation can bring a range of benefits to your daily operations. As well as it providing a one stop shop solution incorporating all FM services from electrical maintenance and security to catering and cleaning, TFM can remove the hassle of running multiple procurement processes.

As public sector organisations often work to tight budgets, the TFM route can help save valuable time and money. With organisations continuously looking for more ways to increase efficiency, strategic facility management through TFM can help you to operate more effectively by supporting the functionality, safety and sustainability of an organisation and can prevent unplanned disruptions.

Why use Framework 676 for TFM?

Procuring your own solution for facilities management services can often be a lengthy, expensive and complicated process to undertake on your own. At ESPO, we have a team of procurement experts who have created a comprehensive and compliant route for you to procure these services - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full procurement process. Take a look at some of the benefits and improvements of our new Framework 676:

Straight forward processes
Use ESPO’s call-off terms for a more straightforward process (rather than NEC3 terms as per the previous framework)

Access to more services
Although any service that would fall under total facilities management can be procured even if it’s not in the listed scope of our User Guide, more services have been added to the core scope including energy management, voids property management, and guardian services.
One solution
Hard FM and Soft FM services can be procured from all service providers as one solution, helping you access the services you essentially need quickly and easily.
Social value enabled
We continuously seek and support the provision of social value within our procurement solutions for the UK Public Sector. As part of our ongoing commitment to social value practices, we have partnered with the Social Value Portal. For this framework, social value was assessed as part of the award criteria allowing social value benefits to be obtained.
Dependable supplier standards
Putting your trust in a supplier can be a difficult decision. Suppliers on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability - so rest assured you are receiving the highest of standards.
Support and guidance
We understand the procurement process can be a daunting task. To help, we can provide you with template further competition documentation to save you time and of course our team at ESPO can assist you along the way as much or as little as you need.



“We have created a total FM framework that covers all areas of facilities management with a wide range of experienced providers on a fully national basis. Our framework offers a quick, compliant and free-of-charge route to market for all ESPO customers to use”
