Extending our commercial outperformance framework with Anglian Water

We have been awarded a five-year extension to our position on Anglian Water’s Commercial Outperformance and Construction Economics (COCE) framework.

The framework will continue to be delivered through an alliancing approach, working alongside our partners AECOM, Mott MacDonald and Anglian Water to support the realisation of outperformance targets through AMP7. To date, the framework’s alliancing delivery model has brought cost savings and efficiencies to Anglian Water’s operating expenditure (OPEX) and capital expenditure (CAPEX) programmes.

The alliance has over 70 individuals working with Anglian Water across the COCE framework. They are responsible for providing commercial services over both capital and operational programmes. The full spectrum of these services ranges from contract administration, project controls and project management, procurement, efficiency reviews, risk and cost management, to benchmarking, supply chain and market analysis.

Tom Westley Lowe, Associate Director and COCE Alliance Lead, said:

Our reappointment to the COCE framework demonstrates the success of Anglian Water’s alliancing approach.

"By setting mutual goals, aligned commercial drivers and encouraging collaborative behaviour, the alliance has already helped bring value-for-money to Anglian Water’s customers. This framework extension strengthens our relationship with an important client and builds on our strategic advisory capabilities that are helping to transform Anglian Water’s commercial services."

Director Jason Jones, said:

We are pleased to be extending our long standing relationship with Anglian Water, supporting them to deliver outperformance on their AMP7 business plan against a backdrop of increasing environmental, economic and regulatory challenges.

"We are committed to working collaboratively with our alliance partners AECOM and Mott MacDonald, to ensure greater value for Anglian Water’s customers through our combined expertise and the delivery of industry best practice."
