It's A Knockout - Anaesthetists Tender Sees One Winner

How's this for a coincidence, Churchill, the cleaning contractor, has got the gig at Churchill House - home to the  Royal College of Anaesthetists.

Churchill has secured a two year contract - after a five way tender elimination process.

There will be no time for sleeping on the job for Churchill's staff - the contract comprises general and specialist cleaning services, as well as washroom and window cleaning across the college site.

The Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA) is the third largest Medical Royal College by UK membership with 23,000 members.

As a member of the London Universities Purchasing Consortium, the RCoA used the framework set out by the institution and released the contract to tender to five cleaning and facilities companies. Churchill was selected by the RCoA specifically for its commitment to sustainability, people training & development and an electronic auditing platform.

Natasha Marshall, Head Of Facilities at the college said: “The RCoA was particularly keen to work with a company that has a demonstrated commitment to sustainability and environmental sensitivity. We are confident that the partnership with Churchill will help us achieve and even exceed our sustainability goals.”

Joe Saisi, Operations Director for Churchill London & South East added: “Churchill Cleaning is looking forward to working in partnership with the RCoA to support the cleaning efforts on this iconic site. Our sustainability and environmental efforts shone through at tender level and we will implement these strategies throughout the duration of the contract.”
