Steve Rice, head of Next Generation Estates Contractssaid: “The top priority for DIO is to support our Armed Forces as they prepare for frontline operations by providing a first-class built estate that meets their needs. It is also important that we deliver these facilities sustainably and cost-effectively, in harmony with wider estate and Government interests.
“Defence Transformation is driving fundamental shifts in the military footprint which will start generating new built requirements. So, for the years ahead, we need a stable of excellent suppliers ready to tender competitive solutions.”
Jon Wooden, the Frameworks project manager, said: “This is a key point in the procurement of this contract. I am delighted that following a systematic evaluation of the submissions received, we will have a strong field of businesses going forward to the tender stage.
“This is a national contract that will involve the framework contractors competing for projects. These will require support from reliable businesses at a regional and local level. From door handles to low-carbon heating we would urge smaller suppliers and subcontractors to make their products and services known to the shortlisted bidders.”
