It is our intention to always engage our contractors and suppliers on the basis of the following standard contracts.
These contracts were developed following discussions with various industry bodies and many issues raised were incorporated in the final drafting. We believe our standard suite of contracts reflect a sensible allocation of risk and responsibility between the parties and that these contracts will save management time for us and our suppliers and contractors when setting up and managing contracts.
Suppliers and contractors should always submit tenders that are compliant with the appropriately selected contract but, subject to meeting this requirement, may offer alternative tenders where this provides demonstrable benefits to Network Rail.
