Derwent files its first two government document storage contracts

Houses-of parliament-whitehall_iStock_201204Derwent FM has won its first two contracts under the Government’s Document Storage and Related Services Framework.

Derwent FM was appointed to the £37.5m a year framework last year along with parent company Derwent Living, by the Government Procurement Service, an executive Agency to the Cabinet Office.

The first contract win is a four-year deal with Bristol City Council worth around £300,000, which will see the company provide mail collection, mail opening, scanning, indexing, archiving, document retrieval and safe destruction, with one of its SME partners Box-it.

The second is a £50,000 deal with the Treasury Solicitor’s Office (TSol) to provide an inventory audit and scanning of all files and documentation.

In response to the contract awards, the company has created a third stand-alone division, Derwent Records Management, which will focus on providing online and physical storage, tracking and scanning services. The new division will be headed by Paul Stableford, who has been with the company for over two years and currently manages the HMRC contract.

Martin Corbett, managing director, Derwent FM, said:

“These new contracts demonstrate our collaborative approach to working together with our SME partners to deliver efficient client services.”
