ISS wins major public-school contract in Australia
ISS Australia has won a contract with the Victorian State Government to provide cleaning services to 214 public schools in Western and North Eastern Melbourne. Once mobilised, the contract will become one of the largest contracts in the ISS Pacific business.
ISS will provide cleaning services to 214 public schools with more than 500 cleaning professionals directly employed by ISS, ensuring consistency and compliance across all sites.
Stuart Rose, commercial director for ISS Australia, says of the contract win:
"We are proud to add this account to our growing Australian education portfolio, and we look forward to establishing an open, collaborative relationship with the Victorian State Government.
"It is our self-delivery model that makes this kind of partnership possible. By empowering and training our own people, we can ensure that ISS delivers the best service to the end users of our customers - in this case the students and teaching staff at these Victorian public schools."
ISS was selected for its track record in public education, its ethical employment practices, and its self-delivery model.
ISS Australia provides cleaning and other facilities management services to a growing portfolio in the education segment, including more than 12 major universities, 56 technical and further education institutions, and now over 1,100 schools.
The new contract covers two of the eight Melbourne regions that the Department of Education & Training tendered as part of its 'School Cleaning Reform Project', a new zone-based approach for school cleaning that is being introduced by the Victorian State Government in 2018. This model brings in outsourced cleaning service providers to deliver consistent and quality cleaning standards to Victorian schools.
Through a phased transition, ISS will commence services to most schools in the portfolio on 1st July 2018.
