Transport Model Development and Analysis

Leave a comment

The Planet Framework Model (PFM) is designed, maintained and used to forecast the impact on demand, revenue and benefits of rail schemes such as HS2. The intention is to seek an external provider of transport model audit services, who is demonstrably independent of any conflicting model development and analysis both at contract award and for the duration of the contract. The need for these services is anticipated to continue until approval of the Phase 2 Hybrid Bill, towards the end of the current Parliament. Model audit will concern new transport models developed and used by HS2 Ltd and incremental enhancements and use of PFM.

Deadline for proposals: 6 April

Funding available: £720,000
