The ‘West Midlands prospectus’ has been produced to:
- help prospective bidders determine whether they wish to seek to pre-qualify and, if so, whether they wish to do so as a single entity or as part of a consortium
- communicate Rail Executive’s aspirations for the West Midlands franchise to bidders
- provide guidance on franchise issues that will need to be considered when preparing bids
- be transparent about the fact that our thinking and final position on a number of areas is still subject to public consultation
