create a competitive, dynamic, and resilient service that rewards exceptional performance,
nurtures innovation, and supports us in delivering against our AMP7 performance commitments.
“The new Water Services Partnership will allow us to improve on many levels. In the longer term it
will help us to drive more innovation in the industry, and in the shorter term it will allow us to
continuously improve service for our customers and for Yorkshire as a whole.”
Rachel Vincent, Contract Director, Morrison Utility Services, added: “We are immensely proud to
have worked in partnership with Yorkshire Water for so many years and this contract award
demonstrates a show of faith in the collaborative service we provide. To retain such a key and

secured this contract award that extends our long-term partnership with Yorkshire Water. This
provides us with a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference as Yorkshire Water continues to
evolve its water services model. We will work collaboratively to innovate for change, looking to
identify transformative ways of working that will drive new operational efficiencies, reduce
