Appointed to lead major Ministry of Defence framework

We have been selected as joint project delivery partner by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) – an arms length body of the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to its Project Delivery Partner-Successor (PDP-S) framework

As part of the appointment, we will assist in project and operational delivery of world-class equipment and support across the whole MOD defence enterprise working jointly with Jacobs as the lead parties for the Equinox Joint Venture (JV). Together we will provide project and operational delivery across all MOD government departments, spanning the UK’s global defence operations, as well as offering advisory services. 

To help deliver this work we will draw on the support of a 27-strong supply chain that forms the Equinox JV, ensuring that the MOD can sustain a modern, highly adaptable defence force in the face of a complex range of potential threats.   

The framework will run for an initial period of five years, commencing in March 2024, with the option for two single year extensions. 

Andy Scott, Managing Director, Defence, UK, commented: 

Under the strategic leadership of Turner & Townsend and Jacobs, the Equinox Joint Venture will draw on its proven expertise to support the MOD as the UK navigates a complex defence landscape. 

"Collectively this will see us play a key role in many of the most important and impactful programmes across the MOD defence enterprise over the coming years."

“The nature of modern defence requires robust supply chains that can be agile and adapt to a wider range of potential threats.  We are proud to play a critical role in delivering that world-class capability together with our partners in the joint venture”.
