  Tender Assessment

Estates Managers, Technical Managers and Facility Managers are now increasingly aware that providing the correct “scope of works programme” for water hygiene management regimes and control measures is a potential difficult process.

This may create weakness in the value and responsibility with uncertainties for carrying out the legal responsibilities for the Responsible Person (RP) and your staff, managing their water systems in compliance of L8 and other HTM guidance.

Whether for legionella bacteria or other opportunistic pathogens, within your water systems, this can be a difficult process, and key to any contract managing your water systems, is in the detail of the drafting of the contract, and the “scope of works programme”  

It is too late after the contract is awarded and signed, the prognosis is inevitable?
