HOUSTON – (23 May, 2016) – KBR, Inc. (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded the first contract under a new Government single supplier framework agreement.
The national contract, with the UK's Home Office includes managing a 24/7 helpdesk, computer aided facilities management system, performance monitoring of the supply chain and management information and reporting and Mobilisation of Services will start immediately.
KBR will act as the the single point of contact and expects to receive around 40,000 requests annually, which it will manage from its National Integrated Service Centre in Swindon.
From its Centre, the KBR team currently manages a number of other separate support contracts including those for the Metropolitan Police Service and London Fire Brigade.
This new contract for the Home Office will add to KBR's growing portfolio of property services. Under the FM assurance framework KBR will support the Home Office to manage some 400 properties and 450,000 square meters of accommodation nationally. The diverse estate is used by Home Office business units to deliver a range of services e.g. Visas, Immigration, Passport and Border Control.
The new framework approach, introduced by Crown Commercial Service (CCS) last September, aims to simplify the procurement process for public sector entities giving them greater flexibility and a "menu of options" for a wide range of support services.
Managing Director of KBR FM Services, Colin Kenton said: "The award of this call off contract is a testament to the more simplified process that CCS has put in place. This new style of contracting reduces the procurement burden and enables departments to act more quickly and efficiently, while also benefiting from savings for the taxpayer".
Revenue associated with this project is estimated to be £2.6m and will be commence in 2016.
