Contractors summoned by Maude: the full list

Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude today met with 34 companies including Interserve, Balfour Beatty and Carillion in a bid to renegotiate contracts they hold with central government.

The summit followed a previous set of negotiations with 19 mainly facilities and communications suppliers over the summer, and form part of the coalition government’s austerity drive.

Mr Maude said: “Although renegotiating contracts in this way had never been done by government before, it has proved to be a success for all sides involved, particularly the taxpayer. 

“Several Memoranda of Understanding have already been signed and we expect more to be signed over the coming weeks. When this first process is complete it is likely to deliver savings running into hundreds of millions of pounds.

“But, it’s not just about the money and that is one of the reasons why we have launched this new phase, involving around 30 more suppliers today. 

“It is about changing the way government does business over the long term.  During this stage of the process we’re going to be looking really closely at the way companies provide services to government and at what we can do to ensure we establish government as a single, more efficient customer.”
