Cleaning of NSW Government schools and other facilities

The NSW Government Facilities Management (Cleaning) contract provides cleaning services to over 4,200 government sites across NSW, including schools, TAFE colleges, courthouses, and police and fire stations.

Following broad consultation with cleaners, and feedback from stakeholders, the Government revised the new cleaning services contract to offer employment and additional protections to permanently employed cleaners who were hired prior to 2 March 2018.

Following a competitive and rigorous procurement process, nine new contracts to deliver cleaning services across NSW regions have been awarded. The new contracts are estimated to save taxpayers more than $75 million over the term of the contract.

The cleaning service providers are:

Contractor Region
Broadspectrum Pty Ltd Hunter/Central Coast
Western Sydney
Colin Joss & Co. Southern NSW
North Western NSW
Facilities First Australia Northern Sydney
ISS Facility Services Pty Ltd Sydney
North Coast
South Western Sydney
Pickwick Group Pty Ltd Sydney CBD

*Bold denotes incumbent

The new contracts will come into effect on 1 March 2019.

To ensure there is no disruption to service delivery, and to provide job security and peace of mind for cleaners, the Government extended the contracts of the current cleaning service providers to 28 February 2019.
