  • Mitie appointed to the CCS framework for both Security and Defence
  • Underpins ambition to increase share of public sector and defence FM contracts

Mitie, the UK’s leading facilities management company, has been named as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Facilities Management frameworks for Security and Defence.

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 manned guarding, CCTV systems, perimeter fencing, gates and access control amongst 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 estate, including living accommodation for service men and women.

These security and defence framework appointment are in addition to the Phase 1 CCS Facilities Management framework which Mitie won a place on in July 2018. This enabled Mitie 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 its commitment to supporting the government and the wider public sector.

Simon Venn, Chief Government & Strategy Officer, Mitie, commented:

“Being named as a supplier on both the Security and Defence CCS frameworks are important steps for Mitie in 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.”
