Amey takes part in Defence & Security focused Institution for Collaborative Working event

An event hosted by the Institution for Collaborative Working (ICW) brought together representatives from Amey’s Defence contracts, the Ministry of Defence and the Home Office to focus on how industry and the public sector can collaborate better to deliver Government services and objectives.

The event, known as Share and Learn, is one of a number of tailored sessions that are designed to advance the case for collaborative working by sharing best practice and bringing together a network in support of these aims.

It provided the opportunity for a wide range of critical industry partners and leaders from across Government departments to explore and learn more about some of the key aspects of collaborative working and specifically the challenges that the MOD faces in positively exploiting the potential benefits.

The group considered what existing arrangements are in place that would benefit from a more transparent and collaborative approach and the level of experience in the room allowed for real insight across Defence. The event demonstrated how a commitment to open communication and a willingness to share experiences can be a gateway to continuous improvement and it is anticipated that further events will follow.

Steve Fulcher, Amey’s Defence Stakeholder Relationships lead, attended the event and said “Amey has long championed the benefits of collaborative working and the positive impact it has on the service we provide to our military community. We value our role on the Executive of the ICW and are proud of the added value our partnership with the Defence Infrastructure Organistion has provided over the last 4 years by following the governance and principles associated with our ISO 44001 certification.”
