G4S wins major Ministry of Justice integrated facilities services contract

G4S has been awarded a contract to provide integrated facilities services to the UK’s Ministry of Justice (MoJ), worth up to £300 million over five years. This is one of the first contracts to be awarded by the MoJ within a new framework agreement set up as part of a nationwide review of how it manages its courts and related buildings. G4S is one of only seven companies on the new framework, which is expected to incorporate some major new facilities services programmes.

The core contract, which starts on 1 February 2012, is worth around £35 million annually but also offers the potential for up to £25 million in project work each year. Under the contract G4S will provide more than 150 maintenance, catering, cleaning, security and energy management services to over 340 court, tribunal and administration buildings across the Midlands, Wales and the North of England. G4S will employ around 800 staff to fulfil the contract, the majority of whom will be transferred from existing service providers.

The G4S commitment to industry and professional standards, partnering and continuous improvement was a key factor in securing this new contract. This contract builds on the company’s position as the UK’s fastest growing facilities services provider, with other major wins in 2011 including the Birmingham Heartlands and Liverpool Women’s’ Hospitals, and security services at all RBS locations across the UK and Ireland.

David Taylor-Smith, CEO for G4S in the UK and Ireland, said:

“G4S has been a major provider of custodial and justice services to the Ministry of Justice for many years, through our prisons and court escorting contracts and we are delighted to have been selected by MoJ to provide a comprehensive range of facilities services to its broader UK estate.

As a major provider to Government, we are committed to helping it deliver the savings it needs in the current financial climate. We are confident that we will be able to deliver the MoJ these essential services effectively and efficiently, and at significantly less cost than the current multiple providers.

The outsourcing of facilities services is a growing trend both in the UK and overseas and we expect governments and corporations to continue to look to the private sector to outsource many of their non-core functions.”
