On a large and complex programme like Crossrail, the supply chain will be long and diverse offering opportunities to all sizes and types of supplier.
Crossrail opportunities will fall into two categories: Direct with Crossrail Ltd (CRL); Indirect with the Crossrail supply chain.
CRL will be directly buying and managing a relatively small number of contracts with Tier 1 suppliers or contractors. They, in turn, will be buying a wide variety of services and works from a large number of smaller suppliers and contractors.
Companies can view the planned Tier 1 contracts at the current opportunities section.
