Purpose – This paper aims to consider how an organisation can strategically manage its position with regard to suppliers of multiple services and to suggest a strategy for obtaining and protecting optimum multiple contract management and performance. Design/methodology/approach – Literature review of published work along with questionnaires and interviews with a range of people working within the industry from top managerial level to technicians.

Research limitations/implications – Owing to constraint of time, the author has done only limited study in specific areas. The literature reviewed is not exhaustive. Many concepts are mentioned and referenced but not explained fully due to space constraints. Practical implications – Helps facilities managers to exemplify their knowledge and skill, by apprehending the role of innovation management in facilities management (FM) at operational and strategic levels, and establishes the factors that led to the growth and development of innovation as a field and an important part of the FM world, including relationship with suppliers and multiple contract management.
