The British Institute of Facilities Management has published new guidance on the buying process for goods or services that support facilities management delivery.


The new Good Practice Guide to Facilities Management Procurement supports FM professionals in understanding how the buying process should operate, whether they have in-house procurement support or they are responsible for handling the purchase themselves.


Peter Brogan, Research and Information Manager at BIFM, said: “Procurement is one of the many skills and areas of knowledge that a facilities manager needs to be successful in the role.


“In addition to setting out how the buying process should work, this new guidance highlights the issues to consider and key decision points, irrespective of whether the organisation is public or privately owned, or in the third sector.


“The intention of the guide is to establish an industry-recognised best practice approach, helping FMs to demonstrate the positive impact FM can have, ensuring money and resources are not wasted.”


The Good Practice Guide to Facilities Management Procurement guide is also aligned to the Procurement modules of the BIFM Qualifications at levels 4, 5 and 6.
