The UK Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has chosen WYG as principal support provider (PSP) for new projects in both the central and southern regions of the UK. The appointment comes on the back of the DIO’s recent move to a regional commissioning model.

The amendment to WYG’s existing PSP framework is initially for one year but can be extended in one year increments up to a maximum of three years. WYG estimates that its expanded role under the new model could double its existing £12m per annum revenue in each of the next three years.

Separately, WYG has been included on the Crown Commercial Service’s £2.9bn framework that provides government customers with project management and design services to support property and construction projects.  WYG has been included on this framework under three separate lots. The framework is initially for two years though this can be extended to four years. WYG expects to generate fees of £3m a year from this.

Chief executive Paul Hamer said: “In a highly competitive environment, the award of two out of three of the regions under DIO's principal support provider regional commissioning model – covering all of England and Wales – is particularly pleasing and confirmation that during our work for the MoD over the past 25 years we have continually refreshed our approach to help the MoD to deliver its operational capability.”
