On December 14, PMCG signed a framework agreement with the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) to become a lead supplier in its Global Development Delivery (GDD) Framework. This framework replaces two outgoing FCDO frameworks, namely the International Multi-Disciplinary Framework and the Global Economic Development Framework.
Valued at around GBP 3 billion the GDD Framework comprises 14 lots and operates on a worldwide scale, encompassing sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe & Central Asia, the Western Balkans, the Middle East & North Africa, South America, South Asia, and British Overseas Territories. Moreover, this framework enables UK government departments worldwide to access high-quality technical expertise and delivery capacity in a cost-effective manner.
PMCG has now been confirmed as a lead supplier of GDD Lot 14 “Governance and Conflict”. Apart from this, PMCG as a subcontractor, is part of several consortia across a majority of GDD lots, including Climate Change and Nature; Health and Humanitarian; Education, Gender and Social Inclusion; Economic Development and Trade; Finance and Investment.
“This milestone marks a significant step forward from our previous role as a subcontractor to our current position as a lead supplier in this crucial sector. Our gratitude extends to the FCDO for entrusting us with this opportunity to contribute substantively to their governance and conflict resolution initiatives in developing countries. Our alignment with the values and priorities of the FCDO is unwavering, and we are committed to collaborating closely with them. This partnership enables us to leverage our expertise, and that of our highly regarded consortium members, working towards impactful outcomes that address governance challenges and facilitate conflict resolution,” said Lasha Meskhia, Business Development Director at PMCG.
