BIFM’s Procurement Special Interest Group (SIG) has published a Guidance Note to help facilities management professionals involved in supply chain management understand statutory compliance across procurement projects.


The Supply Chain Statutory Compliance in FM Guidance Note includes information for FM professionals who are involved in the procurement process, from those with in-house procurement teams and working in supply chain management to those directly handling the responsibilities of purchasing.


The document highlights key elements that facilities managers need to understand in the procurement process, to ensure that all facilities and FM supply chain facilities remain statutorily compliant in areas such as legislation and resource management.


Peter Brogan, BIFM Research and Information Manager, said: “This Guidance Note will provide the missing link for facilities managers between managing the procurement process and ensuring compliance responsibility. Among other things, a facilities manager today needs to acquire key skills and knowledge about compliance to be successful in the role and adhere to best practice.


“FM professionals can use this Guidance Note as a reference point for their work within procurement supply chain management and to ensure they are compliant with industry guidelines. What’s more, this publication can also help FM professionals achieve great results across their existing procurement process, by following industry advice about better investment and resource management.”


BIFM will also be publishing a Good Practice Guide on the topic this month, which will align with BIFM qualification modules on procurement at levels four, five and six.
