Mitie and BAM FM have both been named as suppliers on the new Crown Commercial Services framework (RM6232).
BAM FM has secured places on six lots, including:
- Lot 1a total FM with a value band of up to £1.5 million based on annual contract value
- Lot 1b total FM with a value band of £1.5 million to £10 million
- Lot 2a hard FM with a value band of up to £1.5 million
- Lot 2b Hard FM with a value band of £1.5 million-£10 million
- Lot 3a Soft FM with a value band of up to £1 million
- Lot 3b Soft FM with a value band of £1 million-£7 million.
Louise Williamson, BAM FM’s managing director, said: “This is a very important framework for BAM FM to be part of and will serve to build on our existing government and public sector portfolio of delivering FM services to local authorities, schools, universities, MoD, NHS trusts and blue-light services.
Mitie’s appointment qualifies it to tender for FM contracts across all government departments and public sector organisations to deliver a range of services from waste management and landscaping to building maintenance, cleaning, reception and security services. The contract is expected to run for four years.
Only appointed suppliers are able to bid for work under RM6232 for contracts worth a combined total of up to £36 billion. Mitie said that this win sustains its position as a key supplier to the government, enabling it to offer its FM expertise and experience across the public sector.
The Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, the CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04 billion – supporting public services that offer the best value for taxpayers.
Mitie is already a supplier on other CCS agreements, including the Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Solutions (VCIS), the Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA), and the Building Cleaning Services contracts.
Brian Talbot, managing director, Central Government & Defence, Mitie, said: “We are proud to continue our support for the UK’s public sector through our appointment to this framework. As one of the government’s strategic suppliers providing facilities management services, we are excited to bring our innovation-led approach to deliver efficient, safe and sustainable spaces for government.”
