The Department of Work and Pensions appoints Mills & Reeve

The Department of Work and Pensions has appointed Mills & Reeve to support its strategic estate management project – the Estates Target Operating Model.

DWP is the UK’s largest public service department and has 750 sites across the UK including Job Centres, Medical Assessment Centres and Corporate Centres. The Estates Target Operating Model (ETOM) will support estate management to deliver a future-fit, sustainable estate. 
ETOM is made up of a number of contracts with facilities and property management providers, with an Integrator at the centre, managing these services. Mills & Reeve’s role will be to advise on the operation of all the contracts and implementing future requirements for ETOM. 
Raith Pickup, partner at Mills & Reeve said “We’re delighted to be working with DWP on this strategically important project. This follows Mills & Reeve’s work across 2018 for various government departments moving from single contracts to multi-provider systems, such as the Department of Health and Social Care on its Future Operating Model. This appointment for DWP demonstrates our track record on projects of this calibre.”

Mills & Reeve works for a wide range of government departments, agencies and NDPBs, advising on contracts and procurement, projects, finance and banking, litigation, estates, employment and pensions, and tax.
