Why you need Benchmarking
It is good practice for clients to regularly benchmark and check that their FM services are providing their business with good value for money. PFI contracts have a 5 yearly benchmarking or MT requirement.
A reliable system
The key to a robust and accurate Benchmarking is the identification of good comparator sites which requires firstly a significant database of FM cost data from a large number of similar sites and settings. Then a detailed and methodical assessment of influencing factors that differentiate the client site from the benchmark sites
