NEC4 Facilities Management Contract
NEC has launched a suite of new contracts designed specifically for the procurement of facilities management services.
Developed with input from The Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) in the United Kingdom, the NEC4 Facilities Management Contract (FMC) is intended as a reference for appointing service providers for a period of time to manage and provide FM services.
To support the launch, NEC and IWFM hosted a webinar outlining the processes and features within the contract. Written answers to questions submitted during the webinar are available at https://www.neccontract.com/getattachment/About-NEC/News-Media/NEC4-Facilities-Management-Contracts-Update/NEC-FM-Webinar-Q-A-with-Ross-Hayes.pdf.
A pre-publication release of the contract is also now available for purchase at NEC4: Framework Contract - NEC Contracts, with NEC offering everyone who attended the webinar a 10 per cent discount on any new NEC Users’ Group memberships (contact [email protected] for additional information).
The hard copy of the contract, together with remaining contract document and user guides will be available in June 2021.
NEC and IWFM are also collaborating on a series of practice notes which will address region-specific issues and provide guidance on important themes in the FM industry, and how they can be adjusted and reflected in the FM contract. This work is driven by IWFM’s Steering Group who have been providing the FM sector specific support that makes the new contract suite more suitable for use across FM relationships.
NEC is a division of Thomas Telford Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
