Getting the most out of the NEC4 Facilities Management Short Contract
Time: 11am - 12pm (GMT)
Length: 1 hour
Join Ross Hayes and Ian Heaphy in this webinar as we go over how to get the most out of the NEC4 Facilities Management Short Contract (FMSC). The FMSC should be the default contract for low risk straightforward facilities management services, and the webinar will discuss when best to use the contract, what services it could be used for, and how to put the documentation together. It will particularly discuss the way incentivisation may be included through the use of a performance table, and the detail that should be in the scope to manage call-off instructions, known as Service Orders in this contract.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions of Ross and Ian at the end of the webinar.
NEC, the construction industry’s leading procurement contract suite, and the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) launched this set of contracts specifically for the procurement of facilities management services, helping to identify best practice in the sector and establish the way forward.
The contracts and their supporting documents are a great step to enable the facilities management sector to offer more integrated and consistent procurement strategies, add value to the supply chain and develop stronger, more collaborative, relationships and ways of working.
