Serco Middle East has announced the award of a prestigious new contract to provide asset management and operational transformation services to the entire City of Jubail in Saudi Arabia and acquire compliance/accreditation with Mashroat.
The new agreement between Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and Serco Middle East will see Serco deliver consultancy work for these new services, including the policies, procedures and implementation of an Enterprise Asset Management System. In addition, Serco will also deliver a White Paper Smart-Sustainable-Digital-City Strategy Report to complement RCJY’s ongoing efforts, to enabling the Royal Commission to achieve a range of Saudi Vision 2030 goals and set the standard for digitisation within the Kingdom.
Over the 25-month contract, three workstreams consisting of asset management and operational transformation experts will work in parallel to help implement advanced ways of working, whilst leveraging international best practices to enhance the way the City of Jubail is operated.
The office of the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu said about the partnership: “We are very happy to be working with Serco to deliver this pivotal project within the city of Jubail. The Royal Commission for Jubail, Yanbu and Serco share similar values in the ways that we work together and we recognise their expertise in the field of operational transformation and enterprise asset management implementation. It is their expertise that has led us to select Serco as the right partner to help us achieve transformation and align Jubail to the Vision 2030 goals of the Kingdom.”
Mona Althagafi, KSA Country Director, Serco Middle East, commented: “This new partnership with the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu represents a monumental and early step in delivering on our strategy for 2021. By leveraging our expertise in focus areas such as digital asset management, we uniquely position ourselves within the market with a key value proposition, one that has been recognised by the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu.
