The manual 'Buying quality private security services', developed by CoESS and UNI-Europa with the financial support of the European Union, has one main objective:

To assist buyers in their tendering processes, highlighting the benefits of choosing quality providers. In short, it explains why quality matters to you, the client of private security companies.

This manual seeks to provide the buyer with the necessary arguments for which private security services should be based on best value, including social criteria relevant to the sector. It shows the key importance of defining, identifying, searching and selecting best value for private security services.

For additional information and to download the Manual in 14 additional EU languages and its accompanying assessment tool, please visit the dedicated CoESS/UNI Europa Secure Best Value website: http://www.securebestvalue.org/
