Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management awards seven lots of framework contract to consortium of Witteveen+Bos and AT Osborne
In late June 2018, the consortium consisting of Witteveen+Bos and AT Osborne won seven lots of the Framework Contract for Consultancy and Engineering Services of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. The seven contracts concerned focus on the topics of infrastructure, innovative mobility, spatial design, safety & risks, climate adaptation, water policy, and soil & subsoil.
The combined value of all contracts for the consortium partners is approx. EUR 11 million per year. The framework contract will apply for a period of two years, and can be extended twice for a one-year period. Witteveen+Bos will make use of its experience in managing projects and programmes as well as its specific knowledge of the relevant domains, while AT Osborne will take care of process management. Diederik Bel, Business Line Manager of Witteveen+Bos: ‘We are pleased to be able to continue in the same consortium as under the previous framework contract. This will allow us to use the knowledge and experience gained in new strategic assignments.’ In certain areas the consortium will be supported by Panteia, H+N+S Landscape Architects, AVIV and Keypoint Consultancy, applying their specific expertise.
The consortium won the contract thanks to its comprehensive and compelling views of important trends and of the living environment. It will work for several of the Ministry’s Directorates-General (including Civil Aviation and Maritime Affairs; Water and Soil Policy; Environment and International Affairs; and Mobility and Transport) as well as for the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate, the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli), and PBL Netherlands.
