Bell Gully guides government on key outsourcing contract

The New Zealand government has inked what is considered to be one of its most significant outsourcings in recent years with the help of a leading law firm.

Bell Gully was the law firm of choice of the Department of Corrections on its new national asset management and facilities management services contract, the firm has revealed.

Downer EDI has been tapped by the agency to deliver efficient and sustainable assets and facilities management services for the Department of Corrections and the Ministry of Justice’s national property and asset portfolios.

Partners David Chisnall, Hugh Kettle, and Simon Watt led the Bell Gully team, which worked on all the EOI, RFP, and preferred contractor negotiation matters.

The comprehensive agreement is for 10 years. Downer succeeds Spotless Facilities Services NZ, the current provider, in the second half of the year.
