Assure contractor compliance
08 September 2014
Facilities management specialist Maintenance Management Ltd (MML) has appointed Altius Vendor Assessment to manage contractor pre-assessment, compliance and accreditation on behalf of its high street retail customers.
MML provides an outsourced hard and soft FM service on behalf of major national retailers. Its partnership with Altius provides an evidence-based online system for checking and managing the competences of suppliers – from health and safety compliance through to financial health, insurance cover and other commercial risk factors.
Previously, MML managed pre-qualification of contractors in-house, but this was very time consuming. While the process was rigorous, the information was stored on a number of databases and spreadsheets. The Altius system provides access to all data and evidence via a single online portal, including management reporting tools.
MML procurement specialist Janet Rooth said: "We looked at a number of assessment providers, but Altius stood out because of the breadth of areas that they assess and monitor."
