Carillion collapsed on Monday in one of Britain's biggest corporate failures, throwing hundreds of large projects into doubt and forcing the government to step in to guarantee vital public services.
A spokesperson for the Cabinet Office said: "We monitor the financial health of all of our strategic suppliers, including Interserve".
After Carillion's demise, Interserve is now the cheapest stock in the outsourcing sector, with the shares having fallen 76% in the last two years, and debt of around three times its earnings. "We are in regular discussions with all these companies regarding their financial position".
Gareth Oakley, managing director for SME banking, at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: "We know how critical it will be for businesses within Carillion's supply chain to receive support with their cashflow, to help them through the temporary challenge to their business".
"Ministers are very anxious about Interserve", said one official, according to the FT report.
