Joint Venture Partners
Serco has a number of joint ventures with commercial partners and customers.
AWE Management Limited, our highly successful joint venture with Lockheed Martin and Jacobs Engineering Group inc., manages the UK's atomic Weapons Establishment.
In Australia, DMS Maritime, our joint venture with P&O Maritime Services, is a key partner for the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and other agencies. In partnership with Sodexo, we also deliver garrison support services to the ADF through Serco Sodexo Defence Services Pty Limited.
We also have successful joint ventures with customers. We created GSTS Pathology with Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, to transform its pathology services. In 2010, King's College Hopsital NHS Foundation Trust also became a partner in the joint venture. ACCESS is our joint venture with Glasgow City Council, designed to streamline and maximise the use of the Council's property and ICT assets.
We often deliver services as part of a consortium, either as prime contractor or as a subcontractor. This allows us to bring together companies with the skills to meet the precise requirements of a bid.
Our values and the open and honest way in which we work also make us an attractive partner for voluntary-sector organisations who often lack the scale and experience to access major government programmes. Examples include:-
our model for providing welfare-to-work services in the UK, which utilises a network of commercial and voluntary-sector partners, and our contract to run Belmarsh West prison in alliance with voluntary-sector partners Turning Point and Catch 22
