To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much his Department spends on contracts with MITIE; and how much was spent on contracts with MITIE in each year since 2008.

The annual spend with MITIE for each financial year from 2008 through to 2013-14 (year to date) is as follows:

Financial year Spend (£)
2008-09 46,929,264.37
2009-10 46,275,772.36
2010-11 47,386,906.92
2011-12 41,148,932.03
2012-13 56,340,717.46
Total 249,418,341.90

Years 2008 to 2011 show a steady trend of spend, in line with the contracts MITIE held with the MOJ at that time. Primarily, this spend was through the provision of security guarding services across courts and tribunals in England and Wales.

The MOJ changed the delivery model for contracting for security services in 2012 to a total facilities management model which included, among other facilities management requirements, the provision of security services. MITIE were awarded two out of the three contracts tendered at this time. As a result the value of spend with MITIE has shown an upward trend since 2012, following commencement of the new contracts.
