Welcome to FM KX
Next Public Sector Network event
The first event of 2013-14 Network Programme will be focused on Is procurement killing or enabling FM innovation? Sessions may include:
• procurement challenges – the cost of ‘cheap’
• the intelligent client – an oxymoron?
• disruptive innovation – does it have a place in FM, or is it seen as a threat?
The event will be held on Thursday 23 May 2013 at Tower Hamlets, London. A full agenda is available here.
Network Members can now download the presentations and notes from the People issues and end-of-year review workshop held on Thursday 28 February 2013 at The Source, Meadowhall, Sheffield.
FM Market Survey 2012

A facilities management market survey commissioned by Interserve and undertaken by CFMD in conjunction with i-FM. Click here to see a full report.
We are launching a Twitter campaign this morning in conjunction with the TV programme Careers in Facilities Management: A world of choice and opportunity aired on 17th October 2012 on the Information Channel – Sky 212 and Freesat 401 channels.
There is a need to set a clear and coherent career path in relation to facilities management; this clip discusses the further professionalization of FM as a career from school leavers via apprenticeships through to higher education degrees and MBAs.
