Bringing the Cleaning Contract In-House

Description

A primary school shows how bringing cleaning in-house has helped save money, in this school finance resource.

Zena Smart, bursar of Ranelagh Primary School in Newham, realised that the local authority cleaning contract was costing a lot of money. After a visit by Department for Education Procurement Expert, Claire Dicks, Zena decided to take the cleaning in-house.

Zena explains how this process involved a great deal of administration (following the Transfer of Undertakings - TUPE - regulations), organisation and initial outlay on cleaning equipment and materials.

But as a result of the change, Zena has managed to gain more cleaning hours while saving the school a significant sum of money.
