Multi-disciplinary consultancy, WYG, has recently been appointed to the Pro5 national consultancy services framework, one of the largest local government frameworks in the country.
The two year framework (which has an option to extend by a further two years) means that any local authority (and other associated public sector organisation such as the police and the fire service) can appoint WYG in the following areas of service provision:
Lot 3 - Community Research and Engagement
Lot 5 - Environmental and Sustainability
Lot 8 - Health and Safety
Lot 9 - Highways, Transport and Logistics
Lot 19 - Waste and Recycling
Colin Shields, Director of Transport based in Leicester, attributes the success to WYG’s ability to offer a combination of quality, experience and value for money.
“We are delighted to have been appointed to this framework. It is an important framework that provides UK public sector clients with easy access to WYG’s full service portfolio, allowing them to focus on project delivery through reduced time taken to appoint consultants, and hence realise major cost savings and improved efficiencies.”
WYG provides expert advice and project management support services to public and private sector clients, partners and funding organisations across a number of sectors. Services include: advice on planning and transport, energy, engineering, environmental and management services, waste, geo-environmental and resource management consultancy, and support to enable economic and social reform.
