Interserve Wins Â£15m Facilities Management Deal
The contract has been procured as part of a collaborative process by the category lead, Driving Standards Agency (DSA), for agencies across the DfT including the DSA and Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA).
This contract was signed through the Buying Solutions facilities management services framework, and has the potential to extend further across other DfT agencies and offices.
Bruce Melizan, executive director at Interserve, said: â€œThe DfT is going through a period of change, and this project has helped it realise the benefits of effectively procuring support services in a collaborative manner.
â€œInterserve has taken an intelligent approach to delivering services across the DfTâ€™s diverse estate and, in this current economic climate, the cost-effectiveness of this integrated solution is paramount. This is just the first step in the departmentâ€™s longer-term rationalisation plan and we are looking forward to working in partnership and supporting it to achieve these benefits.â€
Interserve will provide services across the DSA estate, which covers 439 properties including its headquarters in Nottingham, its training and development centre in Cardington, its administrative centre in Newcastle and 418 test centres around the country. It will also cover VOSAâ€™s headquarters and training centre in Bristol.
By combining procurement through one provider, the DfT reduces its costs and improves services standards across its estate.
Rosemary Thew, CEO of DSA, said: â€œDelivering value for money is of paramount importance to DSA and its partner agencies across DfT. Interserve has shown an innovative approach to delivering more efficient, cost-effective services in this current economic climate which will further increase our savings. We are looking forward to working in partnership with them and our colleagues in VOSA to achieve these benefits.â€
