MITIE, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcer, has been awarded a three year security contract with BAE Systems, the global defence, aerospace and security company.
The contract will see MITIE working with the Workplace Services team within BAE Systems’ Real Estate Solutions, whose responsibilities include providing security services to approximately 7,000 employees on 22 key sites across the UK.
MITIE will be responsible for physical security, ensuring all needs are met from incident management, to manned guarding and systems monitoring.
MITIE was awarded the contract because of its technology-led approach based on MiTec, its advanced technology centre which provides remote security, its ability to operate efficiently through its MiTSM and eLearning platforms, and its specialist knowledge of the critical national infrastructure and defence sector.
Bob Forsyth, managing director of MITIE’s total security management business, commented:
“It’s exciting to be working with like-minded clients like BAE Systems who are embracing the integrated approach to security. We’re really looking forward to developing our partnership over the next three years.”
Colin Efford, Head of Delivery for Workplace Services, added:
“We were really impressed with MITIE’s joined-up thinking to technology and the ‘one team’ ethos. MITIE’s systems will give us true visibility of the contract, enabling us to reduce costs and take an output specification approach.”
