WYG extends DIO role in £50m contract haul

Consultant WYG has won three deals worth a combined £50m, including an extension to its role as delivery partner for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

The DIO has extended WYG’s role as its preferred principal support provider for new projects in both the central and southern regions of the UK.

WYG was appointed to the DIO’s Principal Support Provider (PSP) framework for construction design and project management services in June 2014, and the new extension is initially for one year, but can be extended for a maximum of three years.

The consultant has estimated the deal could provide up to £24m in revenue per year in each of the next three years, if extended.

WYG had previously been appointed by the DIO to manage the construction of 1,200 MoD homes in Salisbury.

Chief executive Paul Hamer said: “In a highly competitive environment, the award of two out of three of the regions under DIO’s Principal Support Provider Regional Commissioning Model – covering all of England and Wales – is particularly pleasing and confirmation that during our work for the MoD over the past 25 years we have continually refreshed our approach to help the MoD to deliver its operational capability.”

The firm also confirmed its role on the £2.9bn Crown Commercial Services consultancy framework, with the consultant winning three lots under the £2.9bn framework.

The framework is expected to provide around £3m per year to WYG over its initial two-year duration, although the framework also has the option to be extended by a further two years.

WYG also revealed it had won a two-year £5m contract with the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Facility (CRIF) in Southern Africa. WYG will act a consultant on the scheme to help with the sustainable planning of water projects in Southern Africa.
