Nuclear site operator Sellafield has announced two preferred bidders for its 15-year Design Services Alliance framework contract this week with consultants Scott Wilson URS, Jacobs and Mott MacDonald shortlisted.
The Progressive alliance led by consultants Babcock and Scott Wilson URS will be competing against Axiom, a joint venture between consultants Jacobs, Amec, Assytem and Mott MacDonald for the contract.
The winning bidder will be providing design, engineering and safety case assessment services. It is Sellafield’s first alliance style framework contract, which it hoped will bring certainty and security to the supply chain.
“Effective supply chain engagement through long term collaborative alliances is key to Sellafield delivering and exceeding commitments made in our performance plan,” said Sellafield managing director Todd Wright.
