Initially brought on board to devise an effective system that could be introduced across each of MPS’ active property and construction projects under the Metropolitan Police Building Works Framework, Gleeds conducted a thorough review of existing processes and requirements to identify potential areas for improvement. In doing so, it has been able to pinpoint the most relevant key performance indicators (KPIs) and develop the appropriate measurement criteria. 

In its new role, Gleeds will be responsible for the independent assessment of these KPIs and the provision of associated reporting to an Executive Committee, consisting of both the MPS senior leadership team and senior representatives from all suppliers working on projects via the Framework, which comprises multiple schemes to refurbish and further develop the MPS estate across Greater London over a four-year period.

Graham Harle, chief executive officer for Gleeds, said: “Since our appointment in February last year Gleeds has been working closely with the Metropolitan Police Service and its stakeholders to devise a simple yet innovative performance management system which meets the needs of the Framework.”

“I am delighted that our success to date has resulted in a further appointment which will see our advisory services team provide training, detailed reporting templates and dashboards to support the Met in effectively measuring behavioural performance, as well as the more traditional ‘hard’ deliverables as it strives to develop its estate over the coming years” he went on to add. 

Gleeds’ contract commenced on 1st August 2019, and will run for the next twelve months.
