The UK Home Office has awarded the global engineering, procurement and technology company, Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR) with the first contract under a new government single supplier framework agreement introduced by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) last September.
The national contract will see the KBR act as a single point of contact by managing services such as a 24/7 helpdesk, a computer aided facilities management system and performance monitoring of the supply chain and management information.
Managing director at KBR, Colin Kenton, said: “The award of this call off contract is a testament to the more simplified process that CCS has put in place. This new style of contracting reduces the procurement burden and enables departments to act more quickly and efficiently, while also benefiting from savings for the taxpayer.”
Additionally, KBR will support the Home Office to manage 400 properties located around the country, which are currently used to deliver immigration, passport, and visa and border control services.
