Facilities Management Procurement Group (In conjunction with BIFM)

Sharing best practice and providing a forum for discussion and learning

Overview

We believe that procurement is an essential part of delivering FM services, as we rely on finding the right products and service providers to support our organisations. Whether it be discovering the most appropriate products/services or getting the best deal, all FMs have some responsibility for procurement and supply chain management.  


The Procurement SIG has historically offered support to our Members through the production of Guidance Notes and Good Practice Guides, which are designed to be used as reference documents for those with a limited amount of experience. We will continue to produce new reference documents and welcome suggestions from our Members for new topics.


Going forward, we will be extending our activities to create dialogue around the topics that are important to our Members; sharing knowledge and debating best practice by working with other Regions and SIGs. We will also be running our own events and webinars, which we intend will cover the hot topics of the day.
