MoD prime contracts awards delayed until 2014

The MoD’s estate procurement body has finally confirmed the new time table to sign its delayed next generation contracts.

Many of the new contracts for its £5bn spending programme over the next 10 years were due to be let in 2012.

But MoD has blamed the two-year slippage on the strategic defence and security review, overwhelming interest from contractors and the creation of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

The bulk of prime contracts will now be awarded in early 2014. The first capital work framework – for East Midlands and Eastern England – will be awarded in August 2013.

The Treasury has rubber stamped the changes to the £600m annual spending programme and extensions to the existing prime contracts.

Steve Rice, Head of NGEC, said: “We now have in place formal approval to take forward this major procurement programme, and I am encouraged by the enthusiasm of industry to be involved in delivering these new contracts.

“We all recognise the importance of the Next Generation Estate Contracts for our military customers, and we will continue to work with our current contractors to ensure that existing service levels are maintained right up to the new arrangements coming into service.”

The programme is currently in the early stages of competitive dialogue and bidder tendering for the prime contracts and capital works frameworks.
