There's another way to do your janitorial RFP
We invited leaders in our member network to share their experience and insights to ensure that your next Janitorial RFP will run as smoothly as possible. Watch the video above to learn more.
Still have questions? No Problem:
How does CPA help me find a new provider? First we help you figure out what your janitorial needs are. Then we vet the companies, coordinate the site visits, gather all of the bids and proposals, and put together a summary for you to easily select the vendor that best meets your needs.
Why should I participate in a group RFP? Basically, participating in a group RFP allows you to benefit from the group's buying power being used as leverage to get better pricing. You also are a part of a community that has similar challenges and needs and you can navigate this process together.
Will I save money going through CPA? You may or may not save money. Our main goal is to match you with a provider that will best meet your organization's needs. This may save you money if you are currently being over-charged, or increase your spending if we find that you aren't being staffed appropriately, and not getting the level of cleaning you are expecting. Either way, we can guarantee that we will get you the best price!
What will this cost me? CPA does not charge you for our services. The vendors pay us directly. The CPA co-op fee that is paid to us, covers our ongoing administrative costs, and allow us to provide support to you and the vendor throughout the duration of the agreement.
I am happy with my cleaning vendor but I want to make sure I am paying the market rate. Can you help? Yes, we can help you determine whether or not your vendor's prices are competitive. We put together a comprehensive summary with an apples to apples comparison of the different vendor rates.
If I participate in this RFP, can I change my mind if I elect to stay with my current vendor? Yes. You are under no obligation to select a new vendor through CPA. If you want to stay with your current vendor, you can certainly do so.
