DIO picks six companies for overseas consultancy framework contract

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has chosen six companies suppliers for the principal support provider (PSP) framework.

The companies – AECOM; Atkins; Mott MacDonald; Ramboll; Ridge & Partners LLP; and WYG – will deliver multi-disciplinary design and project management services, advisory services, construction technical services, specialist surveys and clerk of the works duties.

They will be responsible for undertaking services overseas for the next four years and will work on key international projects across the globe. The framework has an estimated spend value of £60 million.

The framework will use mini-competitions among the six companies to select the most appropriate contractor to deliver a project. 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.

David Graham, Deputy Head of International Projects at the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, 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.

“As the key government departments which manage overseas projects it’s essential that we continue to work together to ensure a consistent approach to procurement of project management and other support for our overseas estate.”
