CCS awards Interserve with £40m TFM contract…

Interserve has secured a new five-year total facilities management (TFM) account with six central government departments worth over £40 million.

The deal, awarded through the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Framework Agreement for Facilities Management Services, will see Interserve deliver a broad range of services including catering, security, front-of-house, as well as mechanical and electrical maintenance.

It is the first time that all six departments’ facilities management services will be handled by a single provider. 

John Manzoni, chief executive of the Civil Service said: “Bringing the support services together under a single overarching account will deliver significant benefits for each department and for the government as a whole. Thanks to the efficiencies that our partnership with Interserve will deliver, we will achieve consistent service level across the estate whilst bringing savings; ensuring we are delivering real value to taxpayers.”

Known as the ‘Affiliate Cluster’, the account covers: the Cabinet Office; the Department for International Development (DFID); the Food Standards Agency (FSA); the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD); the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted).

Alongside the new cross-departmental deal, Interserve also has pre-existing partnerships with the Home Office (HO), the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO), the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Health and Safety Laboratory in Buxton (HSE).
