Prison Service partners MITIE

18 January 2012

MITIE Group has been selected by the Prison Service as its partner to bid for the management of all nine prisons currently involved in the prison competition announced by Secretary of State for Justice Kenneth Clarke in July 2011.

MITIE was selected following a competition between a number of providers and the partnership arrangement will start immediately. This agreement signals a new approach to competition for the Prison Service who will harness the expertise and experience of both organisations to enable the public sector to submit competitive proposals for the 15-year prison contracts.

Steve Wagstaffe, Director of Public Sector Prisons said: “The partnership with MITIE will allow us to combine our respective strengths, skills and experience to help produce compelling bids for each of the establishments we are bidding for. Public servants will be responsible for the core operational work involved in running prisons and a number of key services will be delivered by MITIE under the contract.”

Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, Chief Executive of MITIE Group PLC said: "We are delighted to have formed this partnership with the Prison Service. MITIE has invested significantly in the justice sector and this new agreement is really important for us. We are committed to improving services, introducing innovation and creating efficiency in every contract we operate. The partnership of our organisations and the experience, commitment and skills of our teams will create a really compelling and competitive proposition for prisons management in the years ahead."
