Arup, in partnership with URS Scott Wilson, has been appointed to a new national Government Procurement Service framework for Traffic Management Technology research and consultancy services.
The pan-government collaborative agreement is now available to all UK public sector bodies and will deliver up to £3 billion of contracts during its four year lifetime.
The framework will make the public sector procurement process easier by providing instant access to approved suppliers at agreed rates.
Public sector buyers will be able to purchase services ranging from Street Lighting Services to Traffic Management Research and Consultancy. It will also offer greater efficiency for public sector agencies to purchase traffic management technologies.
Arup, and partner URS Scott Wilson, will provide project planning, management, research and design services under Lot 8: Traffic Management Research and Consultancy.
Tim Gammons, director, Arup said, “We are excited to have been appointed to this next generation of framework arrangement. It will help buyers from both small and large scale organisations secure specialist services with confidence, benefiting from a quick and efficient procurement process.”
Jon Forni, associate director, URS Scott Wilson added, “We look forward to giving buyers a truly rounded solution to their traffic management procurement needs – from initial research right through to the final technology. By working together with Arup, we can provide access to a skill base of over 15,000 specialists."
