LLW Repository Ltd has awarded its Facilities Management (FM) contract to the Mitie Group, extending the long term relationship between the organisations.
Technical services, cleaning, manned guarding, grounds maintenance and non radioactive waste management are all covered in the contract, which runs for five years, though this could be extended to 10, if extension options are exercised. A six month joint transition programme is now underway.
Becky Ruddy, LLWR’s Head of Infrastructure, said: “I am looking forward to continuing the relationship with Mitie that has already been established. I believe the new contract will provide us with continuation of service whilst offering opportunity for innovation and value for money.
“I would like to thank Alison Cogan for her continued dedication and commitment as the FM Client at LLWR, which has involved managing the closing of the previous contract, supporting commercial colleagues in the placing of the new contract, and mobilisation, with minimal impact to the business.”
The agreement extends an eight year working relationship with Mitie and sees LLWR move away from the Cumbrian collaboration contract it had with Sellafield Ltd, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), International Nuclear Services, Direct Rail Services and OneFM. As such, it is a new type of contract for LLWR to manage.
The Facilities Management contract was sourced via Crown Commercial Services, ensuring alignment with the NDA Group, and is expected to deliver the opportunity for innovation, in addition to providing value for money.
Gary Savage, LLWR Account Director, Mitie, said: “At Mitie, we’re proud to deliver facilities management services for some of the UK’s most important critical infrastructure.
“We’re pleased to continue our long standing relationship with LLWR over the coming years. Thank you to our teams on the ground for their hard work and dedication.”
