Mott MacDonald has been appointed on the UK Defence Infrastructure Organisation’s (DIO) four-year cross-government Principal Support Provider Overseas framework. The consultancy will work closely with the Ministry of Defence (MOD), Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and other government departments on key international projects.
Suppliers on the £60 million framework will deliver multidisciplinary design, project management and advisory services, as well as undertake specialist surveys and clerk of works duties. They could be deployed to any of the regions included in the MOD’s overseas estate, as well as over 250 global locations served by the FCO.
Mott MacDonald’s framework director Andrew Roberts said: “Gaining a place on this overseas framework gives us the opportunity to support the UK Government’s infrastructure development plans around the world. This will be an exciting, challenging and rewarding role that we are looking forward to.”
David Graham, deputy head of international projects at DIO, added: “We are pleased to welcome these fantastic suppliers on board following a successful procurement process. We look forward to working with them, the FCO and other government departments to lead on projects that support our military personnel who live, train and work overseas. As the key government departments that manage overseas projects it is essential that we continue to work together to ensure a consistent approach to procurement of project management and other support for our overseas estates.”
