As announced last month, NEC - supported by IWFM - has launched its new suite of contracts designed specifically for the procurement of facilities management (FM) services.

The NEC4 Facilities Management Contract is intended to provide more integrated and consistent procurement strategies, adding value to the supply chain and developing stronger, more collaborative relationships and ways of working. This contract is now available in a pre-publication version here.

To support the launch NEC and IWFM hosted a webinar outlining the processes and features within the contract and why they are a good fit for the FM sector. The webinar recording can be found here with the slide set here. To view the full written ‘Q&As’ from the webinar click here.

The NEC are offering everyone who attended the webinar a 10% discount on any new NEC Users’ Group memberships, please contact usergroup@neccontract.com for more details.

The ‘hard copy’ of the contract, together with the 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.

Further details of the NEC4 Facilities Management Contract can be found here.
