Restore Records Management earns £5.8m contract with Department for Work and Pensions

Restore Records Management has been awarded a £5.857m contract by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to transfer approximately 375,000 boxes of records into off-site storage and provide retrieval services.

The three-year contract, worth c£1.9m a year, will see records moved away from DWP’S on-site location at Heywood Stores, near Manchester, for the first time.

They will be transferred to a specialist Restore facility, also in the Northwest of England, with migration beginning in November 2022.

The contract includes 600 file retrievals and returns per day, allowing the DWP – the UK’s biggest public service department - to access information on demand.

Secure destruction services will also be provided in line with the DWP retention policy.

The news comes just weeks after Restore, the largest UK-owned records management company, announced a 10-year deal to manage more than 10 million archive assets for the BBC.

Nigel Dews, Managing Director at Restore Records Management, said: “This is another exciting and important contract win, which extends and enhances our existing relationship with the Department for Work and Pensions.

“Our flexible approach and ability to find solutions was key and we are delighted to be chosen for this project. These are exciting times at Restore Records Management.”

The DWP commented: "The DWP continues the relationship with Restore, following the award of the Off-Site Records Management contract and looks forward to working with Restore in the coming years.”

Restore has been working with the DWP since June 2021, having won a tender for the on-site auditing of their inventory.

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
