UON to end contract with Broadspectrum

The University of Newcastle announced today that it had reached agreement with Broadspectrum to progressively transition out of the current maintenance and facilities services contract before the end of the year as part of its revised Estate Management Strategy.

The transition will see the University directly engage and manage maintenance service providers, with continuity for existing service providers and maintenance of strong relationships it has with many local contractors. The strong relationship that UON has with disability employment providers will continue.

Our priority is to ensure that we continue to deliver high-quality and efficient maintenance and facilities services for the benefit of our staff and students. Our new arrangements will ensure that this continues into the future and that services continue without disruption whilst still providing value for money in the expenditure of the University’s funds.
