Four firms – Aecom, Mott MacDonald, URS and WYG – have been appointed by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to a potentially £250M four year framework agreement covering a broad range of technical and advisory services.

 

The Principal Support Provider (PSP) framework for Construction Design and Project Management Services in the UK and overseas will be used by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) to procure efficient, cost effective, high quality technical and advisory services.

 

Under the framework agreement, the firms will support the delivery of a variety of facilities including storage depots, laboratories, barracks, dockyards, airfields, fuel stores, communication centres, training, medical and leisure facilities.

 

The companies will provide advisory services in assessment and option studies, multi disciplinary technical design and support activity across the full range of construction and maintenance activity, construction management and a full project management service in the delivery of all activities necessary to achieve completion of projects.

 

The MOD says the PSP framework will enable it to optimise the use of its £27Bn, 230,000 hectare estate, which covers 1% of the UK landmass with built assets of 73,000 hectares. The framework includes the possibility of a three year extension and will be used by all future projects procured by DIO.

 

A DIO spokesperson said: “The DIO is putting in place Principal Service Provider (PSP) Framework Agreement Contracts for the delivery of construction design and project management services which are currently not available in house.

 

“The new contracts will replace existing PSP arrangements which have been in place since 2010. The new contracts have been developed to meet the requirements of the new Capital Works Frameworks set up under DIO’s Next Generation Estate Contracts (NGEC) programme.”
