Work and Pensions
Tom Greatrex (Rutherglen and Hamilton West, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
(1) what contracts for providing car park management services to his Department are held by private companies;
Mark Hoban (Fareham, Conservative)
The Department leases back fully serviced accommodation for most of its estate from its private sector partner Telereal Trillium under a private finance initiative (PFI) known as the PRIME Contract. For each site, the Department pays a unitary charge known as the facility price, which is all-inclusive of rent, business rates, and all services provided. This charge would also include the control, security and management of any car parking facilities that are connected with each site.
As the facilities price is a holistic charging mechanism, it is not possible to break the costs down into individual elements for each service provided.
