Benchmarking Resources

For over three decades TEFMA has encouraged its members to submit and share comparative cost and performance data for a range of facilities management services. The annual benchmark survey has become one of the FM industry's most recognised and respected examples of collaborative benchmarking, with more than 85% of member institutions submitting returns.
