VINCI FACILITIES LANDS DfE CONTRACT
The Department for Education (DfE) has awarded a four-year facilities management contract to VINCI Facilities.
The contract will be administered by LocatED, the government-owned property company, responsible for buying and developing sites in England for the DfE free schools programme.
The VINCI Facilities team will deliver security, repairs and maintenance and compliance services to DfE-owned sites that have been acquired for free schools, during the holding period prior to development starting and schools opening.
Vinci won a competitive tender via the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) framework and will mobilise mid-2019. VINCI Facilities aims to maximise its digital systems and make efficiencies during the mobilisation phase and then going live will implement its integrated supply chain delivery model with a dedicated management team.
Tony Raikes, Managing Director, VINCI Facilities said: “We have a strong reputation in education and commercial spaces and this new work with LocatED and the DfE allows us to showcase both skill-sets. It’s an exciting opportunity and we are very much looking forward to mobilising promptly and effectively.”
