http://www.professionalsecurity.co.uk/news/case-studies/bae-systems-contract/? BAE Systems contract A three year security contract with BAE Systems, the defence, aerospace and security manufacturer, has gone to MITIE. The contract will see the facilities management company working with the Workplace Services team in BAE Systems’ Real Estate Solutions, whose responsibilities include providing security services to about 7,000 employees on 22 sites across the UK. The contract firm will be responsible for physical security, ensuring all needs are met from incident management, to manned guarding and systems monitoring. The outsourced services firm says that it was awarded the contract because of its technology-led approach based on MiTec, its technology centre based in Northern Ireland which provides remote security, its ability to operate through its MiTSM and eLearning platforms, and its specialist knowledge of the critical national infrastructure and defence sector. Bob Forsyth, pictured, managing director of MITIE’s total security management business, said: “It’s exciting to be working with like-minded clients like BAE Systems who are embracing the integrated approach to security. We’re really looking forward to developing our partnership over the next three years.” Colin Efford, Head of Delivery for Workplace Services, added: “We were really impressed with MITIE’s joined-up thinking to technology and the ‘one team’ ethos. MITIE’s systems will give us true visibility of the contract, enabling us to reduce costs and take an output specification approach.”

A challenging environment
The UK economy has not improved and many companies in the private sector continue to tread water at best. Faced with tough market conditions and an ever-increasing need to cut costs and improve efficiency, the outsourcing of non-core services is an attractive option for many of these companies. Central government and local authorities are also cutting costs wherever possible and the public sector continues to offer significant opportunity. This is particularly true in the justice, social housing, education and health sectors, all areas where we are active. Outsourcing is an industry that grew out of response to recession, and has continued to evolve in response to economic pressures. According to a report published in November 2012 by Oxford Economics for the Business Services Association, the total value of outsourcing in the UK is currently estimated to be in the region of £199 billion, with a 64%-36% split in favour of the private rather than the public sector. This equates to almost 7.5% of the total economy-wide output, but perhaps more importantly, the report found that the outsourced service sector pays 9.5% of government tax revenues and employs 10.5% of the UK workforce.
