Matchtech has been chosen by the Midlands Highway Alliance (MHA) as one of four suppliers for its Professional Services Partnership (PSP3) framework.

The MHA has announced that its new PSP3 framework, which came into effect on 29 April 2019, could be worth up to £70 million over four years.

The two successful bidders for Lot 1 Professional services are AECOM and Amey Consulting, while Lot 2 Secondments will be managed by Matchtech and Waterman.

Joe Wilson, Director of Highways & Civil Engineering at Matchtech and MHA Framework Director, commented:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to support local authorities across the MHA in delivering a range of highways and transportation projects over the next four years. There are some huge projects to be delivered so we’re looking forward to using our skills and expertise in sourcing experienced candidates to support these authorities with their projects.”

Matchtech’s appointment will help ensure the MHA’s membership of 21 local authority authorities in and around the Midlands have easy and economical access to consultancy services.

Mike Ashworth, Chairman of the MHA, said:

“I am delighted, after a thorough and inclusive tender exercise, to announce the successful consultancies to work with member authorities across the Midlands Highways Alliance area.”

The new framework will replace the current single supplier framework, Professional Services Partnership 2 (PSP2), which was awarded to AECOM back in April 2015 and has been very successful in delivering nearly £61 million worth of engineering, environmental, planning and design services in its four-year tenure.

Jon Taylor, Public Sector Manager at Matchtech and MHA Framework Manager, concluded:

“I’m absolutely delighted that Matchtech has been successful in earning a place on the MHA framework. It’s a framework we’ve tracked for some time as the member authorities are clients we’re keen to partner with. We’re confident we will work collaboratively with the member authorities and suppliers alike, to enable the local authorities to deliver the best highway service possible.”

The PSP3 framework will be available to all members of the MHA; offering design services and secondments, while also providing the opportunity for collaborative working with other authorities, benchmarking, and sharing best practice.
