Six engineering consultancies have won places on the Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s (DIO) £60M principal support provider (PSP) framework.
The consultancies are Aecom, Atkins, Mott MacDonald, Ramboll, Ridge & Partners LLP, and WYG.
The DIO, an arm of the Ministry of Defence, will use the framework to source engineers for overseas work including project management, advisory services, construction technical services, specialist surveys and clerk of the works duties. The framework will cover the next four years.
Defence Infrastructure Organisation deputy head of international projects, David Graham, said: “We are pleased to welcome these suppliers on board following a successful procurement process. We look forward to working with them, the Foreign Office and other areas of government to lead on projects that support our military personnel who live, train and work overseas.
“As the key government departments which manage overseas projects it’s essential that we continue to work together to ensure a consistent approach to procurement of project management and other support for our overseas estate.”
Recent projects include the £46M renovation of the runway at RAF Akrotiri, on the southern tip of Britain’s Sovereign Base Area on the island of Cyprus. RAF Akrotiri is Britain’s main airbase for operations against Daesh.
