AssetCapture – Swindon Borough Council
OccupEye undertook, for Swindon Borough Council (SBC), what is probably one of the largest Asset Management projects ever in the UK, with a contract value in excess of £725,000.
Following publication in OJEU and a competitive tendering process, OccupEye was awarded the contract by Swindon Borough Council for its ‘Swindon Schools Asset Management Project (SSAMP)’. The project was in preparation for the introduction of Single Education Plans. SBC was seeking to improve its Asset Management Plan information base.
This asset planning process would ensure the high level of investment in schools was prioritised in a rigorous, fair and transparent manner, based on a full survey of the needs of all schools. The plan aimed to be responsive to local priorities and to government policies and objectives. Effective capital investment in schools, which ensures they are in good repair, fully maintained and sufficient and suitable for modern learning and teaching needs, would support all other policies and strategies to raise educational achievement.
