Facilities Management


Procurement is often involved with many of the services bought in,  to support the building and people within an organisation -  often referred as Facilities management (FM).  FM  is a significant area of spend for most organisations, traditionally defined as soft (people focused) and hard (engineering focused). Approaches for managing FM may be centralised or decentralised, either through several direct contractors or via an integrated FM supplier which provides all services.
