The British equipment management company Mitie has provided a £ 155 million contact to provide key services to the UK Armed Forces in Gibraltar.

The scope of work under the contract includes repair, maintenance, servicing and management of rigid facilities for the United Kingdom Department of Defense (MOD) mansion in Gibraltar.

The contract was assigned by the Defense Infrastructure Organization (DIO) under the new Basic Contracts Abroad Program (OPC). The contract has an initial period of seven years.

Mitie Central Executive and Defense Director Brian Talbot said: “As proud supporters of the British Armed Forces, we are happy to have received the new overseas core contract for Gibraltar from the Defense Infrastructure Organization.

“By providing these vital services, provided by our outstanding colleagues and supported by our industry-leading technology, we look forward to working with the Gibraltar-based Armed Forces and maintaining a smooth operation on the ground.”

The OPC program will award additional contracts for sites in Cyprus, Germany, the Falkland Islands and Ascension Island.

The second OPC prize is scheduled to be awarded for the management of solid facilities in Cyprus early next year.

DIO Chief Operating Officer David Brewer said: “DIO is committed to supporting the people in the armed forces who depend on us to provide facilities and basic services that allow them to work safely and securely.

“This marks an important stage in the OPC program, as the first of the new contracts is being signed in Gibraltar.

“This new agreement builds on the success of existing solid state management agreements, while taking into account recommendations for additional services and improvements that will improve the quality of life of the people of Gibraltar. We look forward to working with Mitie to deliver to our armed forces overseas. “

In March, the United Kingdom announced the introduction of improved body armor for women in the armed forces.
