Total Facilities Management

The social housing sector faces unique challenges in maintaining and managing their estate including their corporate and serviced. With limited resources and an increasing demand for affordable housing, it is crucial for housing associations and local authorities to ensure their facilities are properly maintained to provide safe and comfortable working conditions for their staff. Total Facilities Management (TFM) is a comprehensive solution that enables organisations to manage all aspects of their facilities, including both hard and soft services. This includes everything from building management and inspections to cleaning and security.

To meet these challenges, organisations need a compliant route to market for their TFM services. This is where CHIC’s Total Facilities Management Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) comes in. By providing a fully compliant procurement process, CHIC ensures that members can access high quality TFM services from pre approved suppliers at competitive prices. The DPS is split into three Lots, each covering a different aspect of TFM services.
