The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has appointed six firms including Aecom and Atkins to a £60m four-year principal support provider framework.
The DIO selected the suppliers to deliver multi-disciplinary design and project management services, advisory services, construction technical services, specialist surveys and Clerk of the Works duties.
The six companies awarded a place on the framework are:
- Mott MacDonald
- Ridge & Partners
The firms will work on major international projects for the DIO, with mini-competitions to be used as the primary method of selecting the most appropriate contractor for each project.
According to the DIO, this “will allow departments to share good practice and deliver value for money by ensuring they are all working to the same standards on large overseas projects”.
DIO 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.”
