Mitie Wins Security Contract With HMRC

Mitie Wins Security Contract With HMRC
20 March 2024

Mitie has secured a new five-year security contract for His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs UK estate.

The £15 million deal will span 40 sites, including 12 government hubs, and was awarded under the Crown Commercial Service framework for Security (RM6257). A security operations centre will be developed and Mitie will use its digital risk management tool to access real-time risk profile data.

The deal will run for five years with the option to extend up to ten years. Mitie has been the sole security provider for HMRC since the services were combined under a single national provider in 2019. 

Mitie has committed to employing 75 apprentices on the contract as part of its pledge to have five per cent of its workforce in earn-and-learn positions, such as apprentices and interns.

Jason Towse, Managing Director of Business Services, Mitie, said:  “To have our contract continued for up to ten more years is recognition of the successful work Mitie has undertaken with HMRC. Having gained extensive knowledge on HMRC’s estate over the last five years, we now look forward to continuing to support HMRC’s transformation by developing our services and focusing on an intelligence-led approach to security alongside the latest forward-thinking technology.”   

Clare Robinson, HMRC Deputy Director, Workplace Policy and Plans, said: “We are pleased to confirm that following a robust and competitive process, we have signed a new contract for the provision of security services with Mitie Security Limited.  HMRC looks forward to working again with Mitie, to deliver a high standard of security provision in HMRC's Estate throughout the UK.”
