Buyer Profile – Network Rail

Twitter: @networkrail

About Network Rail: Network Rail owns, operates, and develops Britain’s railway infrastructure, which covers 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels & viaducts, and thousands of signals, level crossings & stations. Network Rail also manages 20 of the UK’s largest stations.

Procurement at Network Rail takes place on two levels:

  • The Route Services division supplies services that the routes and regions collectively decide are best provided from a single support team. This allows regions to benefit from economies of scale and enables Network Rail to optimise resources on a national basis.
  • Procurement for capital works can also take place directly through Network Rail’s regions. Following the devolution of Network Rail as part of our Putting Passengers First programme, accountability for the delivery of capital works projects moved to the five capital delivery directors within its regions. To support this, some services (particularly within capital delivery) are procured directly through the regions.
