We are excited to announce that we have been appointed to Lot 1 of the Collaborative Delivery Framework (CDF) within the Environment Agency’s Next Generation Supplier Arrangements (NGSA). The NGSA represents a new way of working for the Environment Agency. It will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of capital project delivery and asset management so that the Agency can support more communities at risk of flooding and ensure even more valuable supplier input to incident management.
We have been a valued supplier to the Environment Agency for over 15 years, working under its Water and Environment Management (WEM) and predecessor frameworks. Our successful appointment to CDF ensures we are able to build on the successes we have achieved under WEM.
The CDF will be made up of six Collaborative Delivery Teams (CDT’s), each operating in a defined geographic area. CDT’s will bring Environment Agency staff and appointed Delivery Partners together to work in partnership to deliver works in the programme for that area.
We will be working in the South East CDT, delivering Lot 1 – a range of engineering, environmental and other consultancy services. Also appointed to the South East CDT is the contractor Volker Stevin appointed to deliver engineering construction works.
Marc Pinnell, Managing Director of JBA Consulting comments “We are over the moon with this appointment. It is testament to the achievement of our teams under WEM that we have secured this appointment. We look forward to providing the same high level of service to the Environment Agency in a new location.”
Our appointment affords us opportunity to showcase the excellence in engineering design services we have achieved in the north under WEM, within a new region. We remain committed also to deliver a substantial legacy programme under WEM in parallel to the NGSA programme from teams across JBA.
Richard Chubb, Framework Delivery Manager within JBA, “We look forward to supporting the Agency deliver better protection to over 300,000 homes at risk of flooding by 2021 and building a sustainable programme of capital works to follow.”
We await the outcomes of a couple more frameworks under the NGSA which will be announced in the next few weeks.
