I am hoping to get some knowledge and or advice on a large bid from you, the experts in our field. Our cleaning business is small and I am working full time in an unrelated field. I am hoping this contract would allow me to clean full time. Its very big(to me at least). I dont doubt we could do it with a little help but I am not sure how to correctly bid it.
The contract is for the government of the community I live in.
The proposal is for General cleaning of;
3floors of an old municipal building, 5x/week
Large senior center (upstairs) Rec center (downstairs) same building. 5x/week
Police station 6x/week
Utility office 1x every other week.
Small building on bike trail with only 2 bathrooms
6 buildings in total, unsure of sqft.
I provide all materials, liners, toilet paper, paper towels, deoderizors ect. I am also responsible to contract out 1 carpet cleaning, window cleaning, and floor waxing per year.
The contract is for 3 years.
I did a walkthrough of most of the buildings but I am having a difficult time guessing how long all of this would take us and dont know how to guess material and suppies.
I would really appreciate any feedback you may have!
