Our Organisation

We are a Trading Fund of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). We provide a range of integrated, secure services worldwide to the FCO and other UK government departments, supporting the delivery of government agendas. We also provide services to foreign governments and international organisations closely linked to the UK.

Operating worldwide, our security-cleared people design and deliver secure services that meet the demanding needs of our customers in more than 250 diplomatic offices, across 160 countries. These services include protective security, estates and construction, cloud computing, communications and monitoring, logistics, vetting and translation and interpreting. We are also the UK National Authority for Counter Eavesdropping (UK NACE).

Securing value for money is at the top of the government’s agenda as the country begins to emerge from one of the longest recessions in living memory. We play a vital part in supporting the government achieve this aim by providing the public sector with the services they require within these challenging financial boundaries.

We aim to exceed customer expectations and in doing so, build a deep understanding of our customers’ requirements, interpret their security needs and deliver services that produce effective public value.
