Sodexo and the Department for Work and Pensions

Sodexo continue to roll out and improve ‘Sodexo Connections’ which is a white labelled Top HAT solution from NJW Limited.

Sodexo recently won the integrated asset and estates management service contract for Department of Work & Pensions (DWP).

The deal covers an initial 5 years and has a total turnover of £60 million.

NJW are busy working with Sodexo on honing ‘Sodexo Connections’ for DWP and thus further enhancing the FM Dashboards and Analytics to provide automated performance and efficiency insight.

Under the contract, awarded to Sodexo’s Government Services division, the Sodexo will manage the service providers contracted by the DWP to carry out FM services, security services, and project and lease and landlord management.

Sodexo will advise on investment and service delivery decisions concerning the DWP’s estate and assets, covering more than 900 properties across the UK including head office locations and job centres.

Sodexo said its scope as integrator would include more than 20 services and would help create efficient management through having a single strategic overview of these services.

It will also offer guidance on aspects ranging from supplier performance, finance, business continuity, compliance and space planning, to asset and health and safety management and helpdesk services.

Mark Seastron, CEO, defence and government services, Sodexo UK & Ireland, said that Sodexo would help to maximise savings across the DWP’s estate and make sure service providers deliver high quality.

“This contract represents the way forward for asset and estates management, which enables our customers with large, geographically dispersed property portfolios to focus on running their business while we concentrate on assisting them manage their estate,” he said.
