Legal challenge forces MoD to suspend contract awards

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has suspended the award of three of its Next Generation Estates Contracts (NGEC) following a legal challenge to the procurement from an unnamed tenderer.

Due to be awarded this month, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), the Estates Division of the MoD has announced that the construction contracts valued collectively at more than £4 billion and which include the Regional Prime Central Contract (£1.8 billion), the Regional Prime South-West Contract (£1.35 billion) and the Regional Prime South-East Contract (£1.2 billion) are currently pending as a result of the formal challenge to the award decision.

A spokesperson for the DIO said:

“We are working to resolve the issues raised as quickly as possible to minimise any further delay.”

The shortlists for the three contracts are:

Regional Prime Central Contract

  • Axiam (Interserve and Dyncorp JV)
  • Babcock
  • Carillion Enterprise (now Carillion Amey)
  • KBR-Balfour Beatty (Kellogg Brown & Root and Balfour Beatty JV)

Regional Prime South-West Contract

  • Babcock
  • Carillion Enterprise (now Carillion Amey)
  • Landmarc Support Services (Interserve and PAE JV)

Regional Prime South-East Contract

  • Babcock
  • Carillion Enterprise (now Carillion Amey)
  • KBR-Balfour Beatty
  • Interserve and SSE Contracting JV

Details of when the DIO now expects the contracts to be awarded are yet unknown, it would only confirm that an announcement would be made in due course.
