MOD goes public with £950m contract bidder list to pull in arboriculture and landscape contractors

Ministry of Defence has published a list of potential bidders for main contractor jobs across its 200,000ha estate so smaller contractors can network with them.

The MoD wants smaller landscape and tree contractors to grab a slice of the work totalling up to £950m on sites across Britain.

Defence Infrastructure Organisation, which manages land for the ministry, said jobs would involve maintaining soft and hard landscaping on ranges or undertaking fencing, tree conservation and clearing.

Project manager Lt Col Tim Cherry said:

"Prime contractors are typically national or global companies, but they need innovative smaller businesses to deliver the hard outputs. That might be a regionally or a local enterprise offering tree surgery."

A representative said:

"Early networking is the key to healthy and robust supplier relationships. There is no single prescribed timeframe or method, and different prime contractors take different approaches to forming supply chains."

Just over 20 major bidders submitted formal expressions of interest including Lend Lease and Carillion Enterprise. MoD has published all the names to enable small businesses to network on supply chain opportunities.
