Capita is providing pre and post contract commercial and procurement services to Network Rail for the c£1.5bn Great Western Electrification Programme (GWEP) programme which comprises the electrification of the train lines between Reading and Swansea, as well as those in the West Country and Home Counties.
Our role includes procurement and tender management for the programme, change and programme control, valuation period reporting and final account settlements. We will also provide cost reporting on all commercial aspects of the scheme.
As well as greatly improving one of Britain’s busiest and oldest sections of railway, electrification will significantly reduce journey times through the use of new, faster, electric trains that could increase capacity, reduce carbon emissions and be cheaper to run and maintain.

We build competitive advantage through intelligently applied real estate and infrastructure solutions and enhance our clients’ standing in a forever-changing world.
