ICE through NEC is working with BIFM to develop new solutions for the FM sector
The Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) are delighted to announce that they will be launching a joint initiative to develop contracting & procurement solutions and services designed to support users and stakeholders throughout the Facilities Management sector through the NEC4 contract suite.
The two organisations will work together to design solutions which reflect and support this diverse sector. The aim will be to advance good practice in the procurement and management of FM services.
The first piece of work will be to identify the needs and challenges of organisations and individuals working in FM. The results of this research and the priority actions will be announced at the NEC User's Group Conference and at the BIFM Smart Client Programme at Facilities Show in June 2018.
BIFM CEO Linda Hausmanis said: “Pursuing the highest standards in the procurement and management of FM services is fundamental to our profession’s advancement and I’m delighted to be deepening the Institute’s relationship with ICE, for the benefit of all our members at this critical time for our industry.”
NEC Contracts Global Head Rekha Thawrani said: “I’m delighted with this move for closer collaboration between our organisations. This represents a good step forward for support in procuring FM.”
