Ordnance Survey to provide strategic advice to Bahrain


UK: Ordnance Survey International has signed a five-year Specialist Advisory Framework Agreement with the Survey and Land Registration Bureau (SLRB) of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The agreement provides an opportunity for both organisations to work together collaboratively on a number of projects, the first of which will be the development of a new long-term strategy, which will support SLRB in continuing to develop its role as the authoritative cadastral and mapping authority for Kingdom of Bahrain.

An initial contract was announced in April 2013, which allowed the organisations and relevant stakeholders to work together to develop a national 3D spatial data model for the Kingdom of Bahrain.

“The partnership we have built with SLRB represents a landmark agreement for collaborative working across all levels of our respective organisations; we have developed together a model for delivering knowledge transfer programmes. I am delighted that we are today signing a five year framework contract so that we can work on a number of projects together to enhance the important work of SLRB as the underpinning geographical framework for the nation. This will deliver economic benefits across many areas of development within the Kingdom of Bahrain.” said Dr Vanessa Lawrence, Director General and Chief Executive of Ordnance Survey.
