Engaging a Third-Party Consultant

April 11, 2015

The Request for Proposal (RFP) process can be a burden for commercial property managers and owners. For this reason, many companies hire a third-party consultant to assist with crafting quality RFPs. When hiring a third-party consultant, there are a number of factors you should consider:


When it comes to hiring any outside consultant, it’s important to find a partner who can provide an independent, and impartial point of view. Objectivity is crucial when it comes to finding the right contractor or supplier to meet your needs.

At DCS Global, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with objective recommendations. We maintain our impartial position by remaining autonomous. We have no alliances with any specific janitorial contractor or supplier. 

Personalized Attention 

While your commercial property may be quite similar to other buildings, there will undoubtedly be those few quirks that are unique to your building. When it comes to setting your building service contractors up for success, it’s imperative that site-specific details be developed for your site in advance, DCS provides this as a part of our service.

Our focus lies primarily on nurturing healthy working partnerships between owners or managers and their service contractors. By providing personalized attention, we strive to develop successful relationships that lead to quality results and increased value. 

Professional and Experienced

When you engage a third-party cleaning consultant, it goes without saying that your choice must exude professionalism. It is also imperative that they have experience working in commercial buildings like yours.

The ideal cleaning consultant should be experienced in cleaning, cleaning systems, environmental issues, and facility issues. At DCS, our specialized Cleaning Consulting Services are built from experience in these realms, and we are always looking for innovative solutions that will help us best serve our clients.

Certification Process

Once engaged in the consulting process, DCS will complete a certified inspection of your facility to benchmark the quality of cleaning for future use and gather details on any site specific elements, including current cleaning systems being utilized in your facility.

Our inspection process is focused on accurately benchmarking your cleaning quality, providing guidance and specific suggestions for improvement, delivering a full report of recent trends, and a thorough debriefing of your cleaning contractor and building/facility manager.
