Interserve Press Office | Aug 01, 2016
Interserve, the international construction and support services group, has won a five-year contract under the new Crown Commercial Services’ (CCS) facilities management framework, to provide total facilities management services for the Home Office.
The company will deliver maintenance, cleaning, catering and security support, amongst other services, across one of the two ‘regions’ of the Department’s estate. The estate region is made up of over 200 sites serving key Home Office business areas including the College of Policing, HM Passport Office, UK Border Force and UK Visas and Immigration. The contract region covers buildings and sites located across the North of England, Midlands, the West Country, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland.
This award builds on Interserve’s existing relationship with the Home Office and College of Policing, for whom it has delivered services for the last eight years. This is one of the first major contracts to be awarded under the CCS facilities management framework, which was established to improve government-procured facilities management services and to maximise value for money.
The new contract will run for five years from July 2016, with the potential to be extended for a further two years.
Adrian Ringrose, chief executive at Interserve, said:
“We have a long-standing relationship with the Home Office and are delighted to be amongst the first major suppliers to be awarded work under the CCS framework.
“Estate management costs account for a significant portion of our customers’ budgets. By drawing on our expertise in servicing large, complex property portfolios and through self-delivering our services wherever possible, we will maximise efficiencies for our customers, generating savings to the taxpayer, while continuing to meet the highest standards of service.”
