Smart motorways procurement plan
Working with the Department for Transport, Highways England operates, maintains and improves motorways and major A-roads. Its work supports economic growth by connecting people and businesses across England while making the network safer for those using and working on them.
The new SMP procurement model proposes new ways of working between the agency and its supply chain, drawing on an incentive-driven commercial model. The aim is to secure a sustainable supply chain by developing close, more collaborative and longer lasting relationships with suppliers – helping to deliver 'whole-life' value to their contracts.
To register your interest in participating in the engagement exercise, please send an email to [email protected] with the following information by 5pm on 8 February 2018 (registrations of interest cannot be received after this date):
- Organisation name, website and key contact details.
- Organisation size/turnover.
- Industry/sector specialism.
- Areas of experience/expertise.
Please note that Highways England will supply further information about the proposed model, as well as information on the different engagement methods, by mid-February 2018 to those who have registered an interest.
