Carillion has won a new government outsourcing contract that could be worth up to £4.1bn.
The FTSE100-listed business has been selected as part of a new “facilities management services agreement”, which will run until 2019. The new agreement replaces the current framework for facilities management contracts and relates to central government departments, executive agencies and non-departmental public bodies.
Carillion is one of only three businesses to work across all three parts of the agreement – total facilities management, hard facilities management and soft facilities management – although 19 suppliers have been selected in total.
Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: "We are delighted to have secured one of only three places on this framework agreement for all three service lots.
“Our selection further enhances our position as a leading provider of facilities management services to the public sector and should offer new opportunities to grow our UK support services business."
