HS2: business

This section provides suppliers with the basic information necessary to help prepare and identify for HS2 business opportunities.

Details of what HS2 will be buying directly and the stage of procurement for each opportunity are available on the Contract Opportunities page below.

This includes information on who has been shortlisted at the invitation to tender (ITT) stage and contact details for our direct contractors who have been awarded work, so that businesses can contact them directly to find out about opportunities in their supply chains.

Appropriate direct contract opportunities with HS2 are advertised in the following locations:

Where appropriate, some direct opportunities will be sourced through existing public sector frameworks.

We will also encourage our supply chain to promote details of all appropriate indirect contract opportunities (i.e. opportunities in the HS2 supply chain) via CompeteFor.

Download our Supplier Guide and FAQs for further guidance on how to identify and take advantage of HS2 business opportunities.
