A much debated issue in the security sector is the relative pros and cons of procuring and managing security as a single service, as opposed to bundling it with other FM service provision. Perpetuity Research has announced the launch of a survey addressing this issue, as part of a major study to better understand the differences in approach.
They are inviting three groups to take part in the on-line survey:
– Facilities Managers, involved in the management of security services
– Security Managers and Procurement Specialists, involved in the purchase of security services
– Directors and Managers of companies supplying security services and goods
The survey is anonymous and should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The deadline for responses is the 1st March 2013. The on-line survey can be accessed at:
