WYG wins UK and Africa frameworks worth £50M

British Houses of Parliament

WYG has won two major UK government agency frameworks and a significant new contract in Africa, the total value of which is said to be worth £50M over the next three years.

In the UK, the company will be responsible for building, maintaining and servicing its defence infrastructure for the UK Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) - an arm of the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

WYG said an amendment to its existing principal support provider (PSP) framework contract was initially for one year but could be extended in one year increments up to a maximum of three years.

This, it estimated, could see its expanded delivery partner role under the new model double its existing £12M yearly revenue in each of the next three years. 

It also has three separate lots in the UK government’s Crown Commercial Services (CCS) £2.9bn flagship framework which provides project management and design team services to support property and construction projects. Projects will be secured by mini competitions and initially run for two years with the possibility of extending to four.

In Southern Africa, it will work for the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Facility (CRIDF) which works to improve the sustainable, equitable use of transboundary water resources. By working with policy makers and planners WYG will work to increase the ability of communities to cope with climate extremes. The contract is initially worth £5M over two years, but it said it expected this would expand significantly.

WYG chief executive Paul Hamer said: “In a highly competitive environment, the award of two out of three of the regions under DIO’s Principal Support Provider Regional Commissioning Model - covering all of England and Wales - is particularly pleasing and confirmation that during our work for the MoD over the past 25 years we have continually refreshed our approach to help the MoD to deliver its operational capability.

“International Development programmes such as CRIDF finance hundreds of projects leveraging billions of pounds in infrastructure investment and are vital components in enhancing the prospects of peace, stability and security in fragile and conflict affected states.”
