MoD seeks infra partner

28 May 2012 The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has launched a procurement exercise to discover how a strategic business partner could work with its property and services arm.
The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) is looking at ways in which it can partner with the private sector to review its existing organisational structures, as well as developing and implementing a strategic asset management plan.

Any arrangement remains subject to approval by the Ministry of Defence and Treasury, but the DIO believes the arrangement could create “a world-class public sector infrastructure delivery organisation”.

“Over the coming months we will be considering whether a Strategic Business Partner can help us continue, and build upon, the transformation programme that we have already made significant progress on,” said DIO chief executive Andrew Manley.
