Department for Work and Pensions choose Interserve for £227m FM contract

by Interserve Press Office | Oct 20, 2017

Department for Work and Pensions Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a five-year contract worth £227 million to provide facilities management services for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Interserve will provide the DWP estate with mechanical, electrical and building maintenance. The company will also provide cleaning, catering, waste disposal, removal and secure destruction of confidential waste services to over 700 buildings throughout the UK, covering over 1.3 million square metres of space.

The contract is part of an innovative ‘integrator’ model being launched to manage the DWP estate. The new model, with Sodexo as integrator, will replace the DWP’s existing Private Finance Initiative contract, which ends on March 31, 2018.

The model will allow DWP to focus on transformational objectives and strategic estates management, whilst being supported by a supply chain of specialist organisations to deliver the specific services needed to operate the DWP estate.

Debbie White, chief executive at Interserve said:

“We are delighted to be working with the DWP on this exciting new chapter in its history. Our goal is to deliver a seamless transition to providing facilities management services to the department. We understand the needs of the DWP to provide a safe, effective, compliant and accessible space for their employees and customers and we look forward to continuing to support the DWP in delivering a cost effective and efficient service.”
