  • Janitorial Services Decision Matrix Tool

    CSG has created a Janitorial Matrix which allows you to evaluate various proposals based on certain user-defined criteria. It also allows you to weigh each criterion that will be considered while evaluating the proposal. The file is set up to review three contractors, but you also have the ability to add more.

    The "Decision Matrix" is where you will find the criteria such as cost, references, etc. on which the proposals will be evaluated. We have entered sample weight for each criterion, but they can be changed by the user. CIMS certification is one of the criteria.

    "Graphs" shows a completed graph of your final evaluation.

    Notes would be used to take minutes of your evaluation, meeting along with your action items.

    Ratings will be given for each contractor's proposal. Finally, all this data would be used to evaluate the proposals.

  • CSG-Meeting the demands for Green Buildings!

    The sustainability movement is no longer a trend, and green initiatives are now a permanent fixture. The need for environmentally sound business decisions extends into the management of all facilities, as evidenced by a wave of products designed to meet environmental goals. When making purchasing decisions to address cleaning, suppliers and buyers alike you should consider if the contractor is CIMS-GB Certified.
