Jacobs Awarded Key Role in UK Ministry of Defence Procurement

Project and operational delivery of world-class equipment and support across the U.K. Ministry of Defence

Jacobs has been selected as joint project delivery partner by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) – an arms-length body of the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) to its Project Delivery Partner-Successor (PDP-S) framework.

As part of the appointment we will assist in project and operational delivery of world-class equipment and support across the whole MOD defense enterprise working jointly with Turner & Townsend as the lead parties for the Equinox Joint Venture (JV).

Together we will provide project and operational delivery across all MOD government departments, spanning the UK’s global defense operations, as well as offering advisory services.

To help deliver this work we will draw on the support of a 27-strong supply chain that forms the Equinox JV, ensuring that the MOD can sustain a modern, highly adaptable defense force in the face of a complex range of potential threats. 

The framework will run for an initial period of five years, commencing in March 2024, with the option for two single-year extensions.

“The award of this new contract reflects DE&S’s confidence in Jacobs and our track record on the previous PDP framework since 2018,” says Jacobs Executive Vice President Steve Arnette. “Our support is seamlessly integrated into client teams, creating dynamic relationships built on trust from previous successful mission critical projects.”
