A copy of our joint partnering charter was enclosed with our original OJEC pre-qualification submission. A further copy of this is enclosed electronically. ADD P CHARTER METHOD P 27 6. Partnering Arrangements Under partnering arrangements all parties use their skills and experience to develop solutions in partnership to mutual benefit. This ensures there is a meeting of minds, that contractors and suppliers can use their experience, so that specifications reflect what the market place can deliver, provide the optimum of information and do not over specify or complicate matters. Partnering is the basis from which incentivised contracts can be let. 6.1 Key principles include: mutual reward / gain share trust and respect playing on each parties strengths, resources and experience to reduce cost all parties add value and not cost freedom to act / empowerment - no duplicated management non adversarial ownership of problems, joint problem solving working together as a single team with common goals. ...read more.


It is evident from our experience that many events or activities involve many different service disciplines. For instance a large maintenance activity (works) may require inputs from both Security and Cleaning, and yet these appear to be managed through separate chains of command. There has obviously been a history of issues as to why you would want to adopt the approach you have decided to take with regard to Soft Service / Hard Service segregation. Be they:- Past poor performance of the FM or soft service providers Limited historical value add of FM's managing soft services Need for closer control by the GLMCA Cost reduction Need to fully deploy GLMCA staff The model you appear to be suggesting is the Independent Managing Agent role, where contracts are managed by the FM, but these contracts are placed and paid for directly by the Authority (GLMCA), with the FM providing support consultancy and procurement as necessary. This our preferred method of engagement, where we act independently of the supply chain. However under such arrangements we still provide a co-ordinated Help Desk function for both Hard & Soft services. In many cases the addition of Soft services to the Help Desk function does not add cost - but adds considerable value by ensuring the same consistent management approach to both Hard & Soft services. It also enables joint use of staff, realisation of economies of scale and the issue of full FM (joint hard and soft ) customer satisfaction surveys, hence providing a consistent uniform approach.
