Carillion's £778m MoD deals taken over by Amey
Amey has acquired Carillion’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) Regional Prime and National Housing Prime contracts.
The contracts, worth a combined £778m, were previously managed as a joint venture between Carillion and Amey.
The CarillionAmey JV won a £626m, five-year deal for the National Housing Prime contract in 2014, covering repairs for 49,000 homes, as well as a Regional Prime deal for Scotland and Northern Ireland worth £152m.
They include a range of military infrastructure and housing services delivered on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), including the repair and maintenance of service family homes and other assets on the MoD estate.
Amey said it had been working with the Official Receiver since Carillion’s collapse in January to continue the contracts, as well as protecting around 4,000 jobs.
It said it had already undertaken a review of the contracts, including an audit of its service provision and engagement with military families to identify areas for improvement.
Under the new contract, a team of analysts will be tasked with processing vast amounts of project data and creating real-time performance dashboards to improve the way maintenance tasks are scheduled and mobile workforces managed.
Andy Milner, Amey’s chief executive, said: “We have been working hard over the last six months to fully acquire the CarillionAmey business into Amey. Our aim has been to ensure service personnel and their families continue to receive a high quality, uninterrupted service and I am extremely pleased that we have managed to secure 4000 jobs in the process.”
He added: “Since we have taken on the central management of this contract, and while we have been waiting for a deal to be reached, service levels have already improved and I am looking forward to working with the client, military families and supply chain to unlock further service improvements through the life of the contract.”
