Mott MacDonald is continuing in its ‘Technical Services’ role, as a key partner, with WSP for Highways England’s Specialist Professional and Technical Services (SPaTS2) framework. The four-year framework for Specialist Professional and Technical Services (SPaTS2) has a maximum value of £250million for the six appointed suppliers. The framework will support Highways England’s delivery of the RIS2 programme, guided by the imperatives of: Safety, Customer and Delivery.
Successful in ‘Lot 1: Technical Services’ alongside five other suppliers, this appointment follows 14 years of continuous support to Highways England through previous versions of the SPaTS Framework. The WSP|MM formed supplier group, comprising over 40 companies and universities, including many SMEs, has provided Highways England with access to technical specialists and researchers since 2006.
The WSP|MM supplier group is led by a Supplier Group Board which also includes Ramboll, KPMG, Risk Solutions and the University of Cambridge, to provide leadership and ensure collaboration, inclusivity and innovation across the combined team.
The framework can be used by a range of public bodies including the Department for Transport, Transport for London, HS2, Metropolitan Combined Authorities and local authorities to access the skills available in the WSP|MM supplier group.
Ken Cowan, Mott MacDonald’s Framework Director, said: “Mott MacDonald is delighted to continue as a key partner with WSP, supporting Highways England as we have done for the last 14 years under previous iterations of this framework. We are proud to be part of this group of specialist supplier-partners and will work as one team to ensure we deliver innovation and value for money for Highways England, DfT and all our clients on SPaTS2.”
