DIO awards overseas consultancy framework contract

Posted 16 August 2017 · Add Comment

The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) - on behalf of the Ministry of Defence along with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office - have worked together to develop an overseas principal support provider (PSP) framework.



Six companies have been selected as suppliers for the framework 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 that have been awarded a place on the framework are:

  • AECOM
  • Atkins
  • Mott MacDonald
  • Ramboll
  • Ridge & Partners LLP
  • WYG

The successful suppliers will deliver 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 and demonstrates a commitment across government departments to work together on overseas procurement.

DIO worked with the Foreign Office, the Permanent Joint Headquarters and other government stakeholders on this innovative approach. The framework helps to deliver the Cabinet Office initiative to ensure consistency and value for money across overseas government projects.

The framework will use mini-competitions among the six companies as the primary way of selecting 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."
