         lights and electronics were powered off, and to identify and prevent

         Following several initiatives for a JLL healthcare client's
         portfolio, the client noted how well ABM had grasped its "One Team"
         approach. Recently, ABM implemented team-cleaning changes across this
         client's portfolio, leading to more than $224,000 in annualized cost

  oTotal Cost Management: The total cost management category recognizes
    suppliers that deliver year-over-year savings and proactively offer

         identified opportunities to leverage its resources for efficiencies,
         cost savings and cost avoidance for one of JLL's consumer goods

         banking clients. More than 200 projects have been delivered since the
         program's inception, resulting in more than $865,000 in energy and
         maintenance savings.

  oDiverse Supplier: The diverse supplier award considers diverse suppliers
    that demonstrate leadership in service delivery excellence, cost
    management, innovation and collaboration.
