SINGAPORE - The National Environment Agency (NEA) has awarded Integrated Public Cleaning (IPC) contracts to two cleaning companies for the North-East and South-East Regions of Singapore.
Chye Thiam Maintenance Pte Ltd won the $143 million seven-year contract for the North-East region while Ramky Cleantech Services Pte Ltd won the $158 million eight-year contract for the South-East regions.
These companies will take over the cleaning of public areas in phases and eventually cover public areas under the North-East and South-East Community Development Council region. Town Councils will continue with their existing scope of cleaning in the public housing estates.
There is one remaining tender for the South-West region before the cleaning of all regions in Singapore come under IPC contracts.
IPC contracts were introduced to integrate and manage public area cleaning that was previously under different contracts managed by various government agencies.
All cleaning works for public areas in Singapore have been integrated into seven contracts under the NEA's Department of Public Cleanliness (DPC).
These contracts will cover the cleaning of roads and pavements under the purview of NEA, Community Improvement Project Committee (CIPC) and Interim Estate Upgrading Programme (I-EUP) funded footpaths, PUB drains, NParks public parks, park connector networks and private estate playgrounds, HDB and SLA vacant lands, HDB footbridges, access roads and surrounding apron of electrical substations and URA car parks.
"The Integrated Public Cleaning contracts will allow for provision of cleaning services and improve cleaning standards and service quality in public areas. This will complement our other efforts such as enforcement and educational outreach in partnership with community groups to help keep Singapore clean," said Mr Ronnie Tay, Chief Executive Officer of the NEA.
