For security, the framework includes sub-lot 1a Security Services and sub-lot 1b Technical Security. The two lots enable the public sector to easily access security guarding, CCTV systems, perimeter fencing, gates and access control (among other services) through Mitie which is the largest intelligence and technology-enabled security business in the UK.
For defence, the Lot 3 Defence Facilities Management Framework includes engineering services for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). The DIO manages land and buildings across the Ministry of Defence’s estate, including living accommodation for servicemen and women.
These security and defence framework appointment are in addition to the Phase 1 CCS Facilities Management Framework on which Mitie won a place in July last year. This enabled the business to step in and support the NHS last October in the provision of clinical waste removal.
The appointment to these CCS Frameworks is a key strategic move for Mitie’s senior leadership team, clearly signalling the firm’s commitment to supporting the Government and the wider public sector.
Simon Venn, chief Government and strategy officer at Mitie, commented: “Being named as a supplier on the security and defence CCS Frameworks is an important step for Mitie in terms of cementing our strategic supplier partnership with Government. We look forward to enhancing our support for the public sector through our market-leading security and tech-enabled engineering services.”
