In a key win for the Programmed Facility Management (PFM) and Programmed Property Services (PPS) teams, we have secured a contract with the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET), to provide Make-safe Services to the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) for a three year fixed term, with two one year options available thereafter.
This contract exemplifies what the business can achieve when uniting to provide customers an ‘all services’ self-delivery model encompassing the entire Programmed Maintenance division’s collective knowledge and skills, in addition to cumulative capabilities and expertise.
This first entirely collaborative effort by both PFM and PPS with both teams working together to develop the bid, provided a strong value proposition that resonated strongly with the DET. Our ability to provide the requisite coverage and range of services under one cohesive umbrella was a key differentiator, convinced them that Programmed offered the best solution for streamlined emergency reactive maintenance to all Victorian primary and secondary schools.
This is a great opportunity for the Maintenance Services business as a whole and an important strategic win in that it:
- Significantly enhances the Programmed Maintenance footprint in Victoria
- Secures a high profile customer and brings even greater depth and breadth to our education sector
- Provides the opportunity for the Maintenance division to develop further opportunities within DET through new touchpoints
