Cohort, the independent technology group, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, MASS Consultants Ltd (“MASS”), has signed the contract for an eight-year contract valued at over £50m, following our announcement in October that they were selected as the preferred bidder.
Under the contract, MASS will provide in-service support for the UK Ministry of Defence (“MOD”), including operational analysis studies, IT infrastructure management, modelling and simulation and software engineering. This is a continuation of work undertaken by MASS since 2000. The contract is expected to run from April 2019 until March 2027 with a break point in March 2023. It also includes four optional one-year extension periods that, if exercised, could extend the contract until 2031.
Andy Thomis, Chief Executive of Cohort, said: “I am delighted to confirm that we have now signed the contract for this important project. This is a testament to both the quality of our bid and the excellence of our performance over the last eighteen years. To be selected as the provider of this important national capability is a great vote of confidence in MASS and in the Cohort Group. Together with other wins from across the group confirmed at the end of 2018, this contract will enhance the visibility of future Group revenue.”
