RIA launches HS2 ‘Meet the Bidder’ Sessions
The Railway Industry Association (RIA), the national trade body for rail suppliers, is launching a series of ‘Meet the Bidder’ sessions of behalf of HS2. They will take place between 17 to 30 June 2021. The HS2 contracts will create opportunities for SMEs and support the economic bounce back from Coronavirus.
Taking place over two weeks, RIA is organising a series of meetings between HS2’s Preferred Bidders, and SMEs wanting to work with them, for the Operational Telecommunications and Security and Tunnel and Lineside M&E Systems packages. Each package contract is worth over £300 million.
Suppliers looking to meet with the HS2 Preferred Bidders are invited to complete an Expression of Interest form and submit it by 17:00 on Monday 7 June 2021.
Links to the Expression of Interest forms are below:
- Operational Telecommunications and Security
- Tunnel and Lineside Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) Systems
Kate Jennings, Policy Director at the Railway Industry Association, said:
HS2 will create thousands of jobs and billions of pounds of investment across the UK, benefiting businesses and communities along the route and beyond.
