Sodexo has won a £45.3 million contract with the Metropolitan Police to manage its property portfolio in London.
Under the seven-year property services integrator contract, which includes an option to extend for three more years, Sodexo’s property professional services team will work with the UK’s largest police service to manage its estate.
This includes police stations, the New Scotland Yard HQ, communication facilities, residential and training centres as well as air and marine support units that underpin the broad range of activities undertaken by the Metropolitan Police.
Mobilisation of the contract began this month and will be complete with full services live by 1 November.
Sodexo’s team will carry out a range of services including:
- strategic property advice;
- provision of IT systems;
- financial management;
- procurement, contract and supply chain management; and
- operations and service continuity planning.
The new contract is the first to be procured through the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime’s new property services integrator framework. Sodexo was recently appointed sole supplier for the framework, which is available to all UK public sector organisations providing access to a suite of property-related services and support.
Dan Weiss, managing director of Sodexo’s Property Professional Services, said: “Our solution has been designed to create enhanced value for our client by bringing together a talented team of property professionals with an industry-leading technology solution that will enable the client to make well informed, evidence-based decisions to support the next stage of their estate strategy and the challenges of meeting their net-zero carbon commitments.”
Paul Anstey, CEO Government, Sodexo, added: “We look forward to working together to help support over 43,000 police officers and personnel in their mission to keep London safe.”
