Mitie has been selected for the total facilities management contracts for HM Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS) in the South of England, and for two prisons, at Brixton and Isis.
The contracts run for five years from 1 February 2012, with a possible two-year extension. With base contract values totalling £40m a year and up to £25m project works to be undertaken each year, the total value over the period will be somewhere between £200m and £455m.
These contracts, which encompass security, cleaning, maintenance and project works, are the most that could have been awarded to Mitie through this tender process.
Under the same framework agreement, Mitie is also eligible to bid for future opportunities to provide facilities management for other ministry properties, including prisons, across England & Wales.
In addition to these contract awards, Mitie was also appointed to the Minor Works Framework for the MoJ in April 2011.
Mitie has formed a Justice sector business unit to focus solely on opportunities with the MoJ, the UK Border Agency and the police market. Mitie says that its contract to provide TFM for the courts in the south of England is its most strategically important with the government and is also its largest in the public sector.
