Promoting Accreditation Schemes to Local Government buyers

At the end of last month we addressed the APSE (Association for Public Service Excellence) Soft Facilities Management Advisory Group on our drive on standards.  We told them about the importance of the Accreditation Schemes, explaining the CHSA marque is the only way to be certain what's on the box is in the box!

We made a number of valuable contacts and will be working hard in 2017 to promote the value of the Schemes to these buyers.
