Carillion one of three companies to win £4.1bn outsourcing deal

Carillion, Emcore and Sodexo have been selected out of 19 companies bidding for the contract
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.

Only Carillion, Sodexo and Emcore have secured access to all three “lots” into which the government’s new Facilities Management Services Agreement is divided, out of a total of 19 companies who have been selected to take part.

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.”

He added: “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.”
