Crossrail Limited (CRL) is committed to compliance with the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 on data transparency published by the Department for Communities and Local Government. We will make available on our website the public data on which our policy decisions are based, and which is generated in the course of our operations.

Freedom of Information

We will make all the data available in a format which allows its re-use, including for commercial and research activities.  Where any copyright concerns exist with this data we will make this clear.  

We will only publish personal information if disclosure would not contravene the Data Protection Act, and disclosure is necessary to meet a legitimate public interest.  By being open and accountable we will enable our stakeholders to hold CRL to account, and deliver better value for money.

Fraud Prevention and Detection

CRL takes the risk of fraud very seriously, which is why there is a distinct oversight committee responsible for constantly assessing the risk of fraud to our business and encouraging the adoption of up to date and proportionate fraud prevention measures within our business and across the wider supply chain. 

CRL’s fraud statistics are included with TfL and available on the TfL Transparency page.  The Crossrail Audit Committee reports twice a year to the TfL Audit and Assurance committee.

Visit the TfL website for Audit and Assurance Committee minutes and papers.
