01 Oct 14. Babcock has signed the Maritime Support Delivery Framework (MSDF) with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). Working within Babcock’s existing Terms of Business Agreement (ToBA), which runs through to 2025, MSDF confirms the continuation of our contract to deliver services at HMNB Clyde and HMNB Devonport to March 2020, replacing the Warship Support Modernisation Initiative (WSMI) contracts.
The MSDF agreement will also cover a number of surface ship projects which will be delivered through the Surface Ship Support Alliance (SSSA). The contract is valued at £2.6bn. Of this c £600m is already included within the Group’s order book in respect of nominated roles under ToBA. Consequently, and as previously indicated, signature of the new contracting arrangements will enable the order book to reflect around a further £2bn for work that would previously only have been brought into the order book on signature of separate contracts. As the UK’s leading naval support business, this new contract enables Babcock to provide both continuity and development of the range of activities and services delivered to the MoD and Royal Navy. It also allows Babcock to develop further its operations across both naval bases at Clyde and Devonport to continue to deliver savings to the MoD.
01 Oct 14. The UK MoD has awarded BAE Systems a five-year £600m contract to support half of the Royal Navy’s surface Fleet on UK and global operations as well as the management of HM Naval Base Portsmouth.
The contract award secures more than 2,000 jobs and demonstrates BAE Systems’ enduring commitment to the Solent region and to Portsmouth, home of the Royal Navy. It follows a successful 12 year track record delivering services in Portsmouth, during which the company has delivered savings in excess of £173m for the taxpayer.
