This procurement relates to the delivery of hygiene services to both CDHB and WCDHB. Previously these have been provided by a single supplier where their staff enter the relevant areas of both DHBs to replace the bins/mats and air fresheners.
We are seeking suppliers that are able to demonstrate that they have sufficient staff capacity in the correct locations to undertake this major service for both CDHB and WCDHB. Consideration should be given by all potential suppliers to the new building works underway at both Christchurch and Greymouth hospitals, as these could add significantly to the services required in the near future.
It is anticipated that the awarded supplier would replace any equipment owned by the incumbent supplier at no cost to either DHB.
What we need
Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) and West Coast District Health Board (WCDHB) currently contract out their hygiene services and are looking to ensure that they continue to receive value for money. This service includes the provision, upkeep and replacement of bins, air fresheners, entrance mats and nappy/sanitary bins. The winning supplier would be expected to replace any equipment owned by the incumbent supplier across all CDHB and WCDHB sites, including rural clinics in both DHBs.
What we don’t want
Due to the shared management model currently in place between CDHB and WCDHB, they are ideally looking for one single supplier that is able to provide the required services across all sites. They are not looking for any suppliers that are unable to replace the existing hardware, or suppliers that are unable to provide the service as well as any required consumables. Any selected supplier would be expected to maintain the equipment in place, we will not move items to a central location to be serviced.
What’s important to us
As healthcare providers, it is vital that both CDHB and WCDHB present a clean and professional image to all service users. It is therefore important that all hygiene services are undertaken professionally and on time. Due to the amount of building and development work being undertaken by both DHBs, it is essential that any awarded supplier has the ability to scale up operations in line with the opening of new facilities.
