Interserve awarded place on £450m NHS framework until 2022

Troubled contractor Interserve has been awarded a place on the NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) framework for infrastructure and car park management.

The framework is available to a range of public sector organisations and will operate until November 2022, offering the potential to generate sales of up to £450m throughout its term.

Interserve, one of the largest suppliers of public services in the UK, entered administration last month after its investors rejected the debt-for-equity rescue deal which would have handed control of the company to lenders.

Its chief financial officer Mark Whiteling resigned just yesterday, but Interserve Construction has now been awarded a place on Lot 1 to provide a combination of design, build and finance car park solutions.

The framework is designed to provide organisations with access to a range of expert solutions for efficient parking services through Lots of provision of car park management solutions.

The company, which has over 45,000 staff in the UK and holds contracts in healthcare, cleaning schools, construction and probation, said it was “delighted” to be awarded the framework.

Interserve Construction director Andrew Jowett said: “Interserve has excellent expertise in both delivering projects within a framework environment as well as providing efficient and effective finance solutions for our public sector customers.

“We see this new Car Park Management and Infrastructure Framework as a real opportunity to work with our NHS and wider public sector clients to deliver high quality infrastructure across the country.

“Growing the framework portfolio is a key element of Interserve’s strategy and follows its recent success in securing positions on the NHS SBS framework for Homecare and Highways England’s North West framework.”

25/10/2017Take a moment to celebrate

Devolution, restructuring and widespread service reform: from a journalist’s perspective, it’s never been a more exciting time to report on the public sector.
