Sodexo extends Avon & Somerset Police contract

Sodexo has successfully retained its catering and cleaning contract with Avon & Somerset Police for a further five years.

Avon and Somerset Police is responsible for law enforcement across Somerset and Avon, including the city of Bristol. The new contract, worth £8 million, will see Sodexo teams support more than 2,500 police officers, and 500 police community support officers and special constables over 48 Avon & Somerset Police sites across the county.

Sodexo was first awarded the contract in 2011 and underwent a competitive tender process for this new contract. The Company is already a trusted partner for a number of blue light organisations including the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Dorset Police.

Paul Anstey, CEO, Government & Agencies, Sodexo UK & Ireland said: “We are hugely proud to be able to continue to deliver this contract. Being awarded this extension reinforces our position as a trusted partner both for Avon & Somerset Police and other blue light organisations.

“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Avon & Somerset Police to continue to drive innovation and environmentally sustainable solutions to enhance the quality of life for their police force.”

Helen Glanville, Senior Procurement Manager, Avon & Somerset Police said: “Sodexo will work with Avon & Somerset Constabulary to meet a wide range of catering and cleaning requirements. We are confident they will meet our requirements for cleaning at a wide range of property types situated over an extensive geographical area while also providing catering services at two specific sites.

“Having provided services under the current contract during the past seven years, we are looking forward to continuing our positive working relationship with them to deliver services which exploit advances in technology where appropriate and minimise any negative environmental impact wherever achievable.”
