Admit it. Bidding janitorial services is like getting your tooth extracted without anesthesia.
If you’re like most property managers, bidding janitorial services can be excruciatingly painful. The entire process, from assembling specs, conducting walkthroughs, responding to bidder questions, reviewing proposals, analyzing bids, sitting through vendor presentations and finally figuring out which vendor offers the best value is tedious and can be downright daunting.
At the end of the bidding process, if you are able to do an "apples-to-apples" comparison and answer one simple question: “Which vendor offers the best value? ”, you've won the battle. By the time the bid process is done and dusted, however, more often than not, you end up being more confused about the answer to this question than before you started the process.
