Interserve has been awarded a one-year contract extension worth £16 million to provide total facilities management services to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).
The new deal extends an eight-year relationship between Interserve and the MoJ, which has seen the international support services and construction group provide a wide range of facilities services to the department.
Interserve also provides the MoJ with probation services for low and medium-risk offenders in five areas of England (Cheshire and Greater Manchester; Hampshire and the Isle of Wight; Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire; Merseyside; and West Yorkshire). Working in partnership with the National Probation Service, local charities and social enterprises, Interserve is responsible for supporting and rehabilitating around 40,000 offenders each year.
Under the extended FM contract terms, Interserve will continue to deliver services including building maintenance, catering, cleaning, waste and utilities management, at over 450 sites across the north and southwest of England, the Midlands and Wales.
Brian Talbot, managing director for central government and defence at Interserve, said:
“We have a strong understanding and insight into what really matters to the MoJ and this particular opportunity to extend our facilities management services affords us the opportunity to continue make a real difference in helping the MoJ reduce reoffending and deliver more efficiently.”
