MITIE expands contract with Scottish Government


MITIE, the strategic outsourcing and energy services company, has secured an expanded contract to provide Integrated Facilities Management services to the Scottish Government and its collaborative partners. The contract was awarded under the Government Procurement Service FM framework agreement and MITIE overcame strong competition from other eligible suppliers.


The five-year contract is expected to represent a total value of at least £30million. The contract, which commences on 1 October, covers over 80 buildings across Scotland, including specialist scientific facilities located in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Perthshire. MITIE is


committing to self-delivering over 95% of the services. These include M&E maintenance, project delivery, energy management, cleaning and a range of soft services.


The partnership builds on MITIE’s existing seven-year relationship with the Scottish Government and provides a number of their collaborative partners with the opportunity to benefit from the economies of scale that a procurement contract of this size will deliver. The effective monitoring of energy and the identification of energy efficiency projects will support the Scottish Government’s commitment to further reducing their carbon footprint.


LCC wins for fourth time


LCC Support Services, the independent national contractor, has been appointed to handle all cleaning services for Cambridge Regional College for the fourth time.


The Cambridge Regional College contract (which started in 1999), has been renewed after a highly contested open tender process. The work includes cleaning workshops and classrooms, libraries, refectory, walkways, all window cleaning, pest control, janitorial services and waste management.


Trevor Smith, Head of Facilities and Estates at the College, said: “I am delighted that LCC has won the contract for another period as it maintains consistently high standards with its very helpful and polite on- site team that is well supported by an excellent off-site management team. This results in very satisfied customers at the College.”


To maintain high standards of cleaning and hygiene, the LCC team starts at 4am and continues throughout the day into the evening. In 2006, LCC Support Services won a Golden Service Award for the Best Cleaned Premises in the Education Sector for the Cambridge Regional College Contract.
