Mitie has been selected as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) agreement for building cleaning services.
The agreement allows public sector organisations to access cleaning firms for sites including schools, universities and GP surgeries.
It also allows public sector bodies to work with cleaning experts to review the performance of current suppliers and recommend any improvements to be made.
Mitie is already a supplier on seven other CCS agreements, including the Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS) and the Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) agreements.
The appointment builds on Mitie’s support for the government and the wider public sector during the pandemic – such as delivering key services of site management, cleaning and clinical waste management at more than 100 coronavirus testing sites across the UK.
The company is also providing essential services such as maintaining production lines in pharmaceutical plants and delivering security services for supermarkets.
Simon Venn, Mitie’s chief government & strategy officer, said: “By bringing the latest in cleaning technology and service innovation – including UV lights to disinfect surfaces and forensic torches to identify spots where bacteria may be accumulating – we can help ensure key sites, such as schools and GP surgeries, are kept clean. We look forward to working with public sector organisations to continue delivering key services to help keep people safe.”
