Mott MacDonald awarded framework agreement by OGCbuying.solutions

Mott MacDonald, the global technical management and development consultancy, has been awarded a number of Catalist framework agreements by OGCbuying.solutions. The award followed an EU wide procurement process with strong competition from the majority of UK professional service companies seeking to provide consultancy services to UK public sector departments.

The new framework agreement is designed to provide a fast and efficient route to help public sector organisations procure value for money consultancy services from accredited suppliers, whilst providing assurance that consultants are fully compliant with new EU regulations.

Mott MacDonald’s success continues a seven year relationship with OGCbuying.solutions as an S-Cat supplier. The Catalist brand incorporates older framework agreements including GCat and S-Cat until they expire and a series of new framework agreements which have been developed to offer customers a broad range of goods and services aligned to their particular needs. The framework will allow Mott MacDonald to build on the previous successful delivery of a diverse range of programmes and projects across the public sector, including existing clients such as HM Treasury, the Home Office, the Office of Government Commerce, Cross London Rail Links (CLRL) and various local authorities.

Louise Jeffrey, from the Mott MacDonald Catalist team said, “We have consistently demonstrated our ability to add value, and continue to enjoy highly effective relationships with both OGCbuying.solutions and our public sector clients. We are delighted at this opportunity to provide further technical and management consultancy expertise through the framework over the next three years as we believe it offers the most efficient and effective method of procurement within the public sector today.”

Through the framework Mott MacDonald will provide:
  • Strategic consultancy,
  • Organisational development consultancy – which covers central and local government, health, defence, education and children’s services,
  • ICT consultancy – which includes IS strategy, IT architecture, telecoms, application design and emerging technology,
  • Procurement consultancy.

Note to editors

  • OGCbuying.solutions is the trading arm of the Office of Government Commerce (OGC), which is itself an office of HM Treasury. OGC was launched on 1 April 2000 as a result of a review of civil procurement in Central Government. Its aim is to achieve substantial value for money improvements in the Government’s procurement budget and to oversee and implement the Government’s wider Efficiency Review across the entire public sector. OGCbuying.solutions, launched in April 2001, provides public sector procurement professionals with a route to the products and services they need to maximise procurement efficiency and value for money. Its contracts and framework agreements offer substantial savings through significant buying power, economies of scale and strategic partnerships. Once again, these savings are counted towards the Efficiency Review target. Rigorous tendering and evaluation processes ensure that products and services are checked for quality, price competitiveness, fitness for purpose and compliance with statutory requirements. These products and services are available through OGCbuying.solutions Catalist framework agreements and Managed Services.
  • The Catalist brand is designed to unify the framework agreements under one identifiable and recognisable brand name. Catalist incorporates a series of framework agreements which have been developed to offer our customers a broad range of goods and services aligned to their particular needs.
  • Managed Services are predominantly more sophisticated, requiring expertise and additional support from OGCbuying.solutions.
