Transition management of facility-related services. Code of Practice

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : August 2014



What is this standard about?

BS 8892:2014 gives recommendations on processes and procedures by which facility owners, operators and tenants can manage the transition from one facility-related service arrangement to another.

Who is this standard for? 

  • Facility owners, operators and tenants
  • Procurers of facility related services
  • Project management/change/risk management industries
  • Insurers

Why should you use this standard? 

Transition management of facility-related services is the process of moving from one service arrangement to another. This can cause unnecessary disruption to service end-users and incur additional indirect costs. The issues arising from a change in an existing arrangement can be off-putting for facility owners, operators and tenants.

The idea of moving from an established familiar situation to one that is unfamiliar can be unattractive, not least because of a lack of understanding of how to manage it. Transition has to be planned and controlled over and above arrangements for the procurement of facility-related services, where this applies, if it is not to impact negatively on service delivery.

Users of the standard can be assured that it embodies best practices in all areas and is supported by explanations and key examples. A master schedule for managing a major transition is included too, along with a detailed checklist of actions that can be used through the transition process to ensure that relevant issues are adequately addressed.

NOTE: BS 8892:2014 has been prepared to complement BS 8572, Procurement of facility-related services. Guide.
