Supporting local jobs, communities and regional economies is embedded in our procurement process.

We engage a number of major contractors who, in turn, use smaller suppliers and businesses to deliver a variety of goods, services and works to complete the supply chain for delivery of Inland Rail.

Find out how your business can get involved.

Direct opportunities

We use the TenderLink portal to communicate expressions of interest (EOIs), tenders and other opportunities to the market, and to manage the procurement process through to the contract award stage.

Create a profile on our TenderLink portal to see current direct opportunities.

Helping suppliers build sustainability capacity

Sustainability is important to Inland Rail. However, we recognise it’s not always easy for businesses to know where to start when it comes to developing sustainable operations and services.

As an initiative of the Inland Rail Skills Academy, we have developed a three-part webinar series in partnership with sustainability specialists, The Ecoefficiency Group. Each webinar provides tips on how to improve and promote your business’s sustainability efforts to your staff and clients.

The webinars are approximately 12 minutes long and provide a step-by-step guide to optimising your sustainable business credentials. We’ve also included downloadable toolkits to help you get started.
