Reading consulting and engineering company wins £1 million MoD contract


Reading-based engineering and consulting company tpgroup has secured a new order for consulting and digital services from the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) worth £1.1m.

tpgroup will be working on the MOD’s £3.2 billion MORPHEUS Programme to scope the next generation of applications that will be used by military personnel deployed around the world to exploit information faster and enable better decision making.

This contract sits within the broader LE TacCIS (Land Environment Tactical Communications and Information Systems) Programme where the Army is transforming its global military communications and information management.  Supporting this programme since 2016, tpgroup is providing guidance on requirements capture, and matching these with emerging technologies to remain future proof and avoid being locked into a single approach, equipment type or technical solution.

This work adds to a number of smaller contract wins for tpgroup‘s emerging Digital Services Delivery offering that combines activities previously provided separately by its Consulting and Software & Digital Solutions businesses. This holistic approach to implementing complex digital programmes balances technical, commercial and user aspects to help customers use information and make better decisions in critical activities.

Phil Cartmell, tpgroup’s Chief Executive said: “This new contract award recognises our portfolio of services across Consulting and Software & Digital Solutions. Combining these together allows us to provide a broad-based support to the MOD across its multi-billion transformation programme.”

tpgroup offers consulting, digital solutions and engineering services across the full lifecycle of highly regulated space, aviation, defence and critical infrastructure programmes. It employs more than 400 highly skilled individuals across six European countries.
