Our Transaction team has extensive experience supporting bidders for contracts in the transport sector. We have experience across a wide range of project types including complex PPPs, long-term operating/maintenance concessions and franchises, turnkey EPC contracts and capital investments in rolling stock and systems assets.
We have a comprehensive understanding across the broad spectrum of transport modes (including their operation), ranging from highways and toll roads, to tramways, light rail systems and metros, passenger and freight mainline rail systems, as well as specialist transport solutions such as airport people movers and monorails.
Our capabilities range from overall bid leadership to specific support in key areas. We can advise on bid strategies, bid writing and presentation, teaming and subcontracting arrangements, consortium structuring, risk assessment and long term asset management. We can undertake assessments of CAPEX and OPEX and the potential outcomes from the application of performance payment regimes.
Our work with procuring clients allows us to give advice on the likely application of scoring and assessment regimes, as well as the likely acceptability and impact of bidder mark-ups to risk transfer objectives. We can support clients by undertaking peer review for bidders at key bid development/ approval gateways.
