What is a TFM Contract?

Facilities management companies deliver essential and sustainable facilities management solutions to businesses, organisations and SMEs around the globe. By outsourcing your facilities management requirements to a reliable FM company your business is able to focus on what it does best. When deciding on facilities management outsourcing there are a number of different contract options available to you – one is a TFM contract. In this article we explain what is a TFM contract and the benefits of choosing this type of contract.

So, What is TFM Contract?

TFM is an acronym for Total Facilities Management. A total facilities management contract means you are outsourcing all of your facilities management requirements to one supplier. By choosing a TFM contract you are handing over the responsibility and the risks associated with service provision to one company.

A total facilities management contract will incorporate a range of facility management services which includes everything from planned, preventative maintenance and water treatment services to commercial cleaning services and security services. When choosing a TFM contract provider it is important you choose a company that understands exactly what you need; exceptional services, at a competitive price, delivered by skilled and experienced individuals and utilising the latest technology.

Benefits of a TFM Contract

There are a number of benefits that can occur from choosing a TFM contract. Here are the benefits of choosing a Total Facilities Management (TFM) contract:

  • A TFM contract is much easier to manage as you only have one contract and one point of contract for the fm services you receive.
  • A total facilities management contract is much more cost effective. The amount of money you can save by choosing a TFM contract depends on the current facilities management service model in place, but clients can expect to save a significant amount of money on their annual operating costs just by choosing a total facilities management contract.
  • Flexibility to react to unpredictable circumstances.
  • Improvements for accountability and tracking the performance of service delivery.
  • Increased security of business operations.
  • Continuous improvements on the delivery of services based on reviews and service level agreements.
  • Effective facilities management services will improve staff morale and motivation which often means there is greater scope for progression and growth.
  • TFM providers are able to effectively manage the transition from in-house teams and multiple third party providers to deliver essential facilities management solutions.
