Supplier Guide: Working With Highways England


Index:

Introduction

This guide has been developed by a collaborative working group Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) and the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) and supported by Highways England. Its aim is to provide information and support to civil engineering contracting companies, providers of professional and management services, and their respective supply chain partners who have not previously been engaged with Highways England and the UK procurement process. For smaller companies, information is included to make it easier to find work and to do business with Highways England and their suppliers.

The guide will tell you where to find contract opportunities, training, guidance and other useful resources currently available from Highways England and other government and industry sources.

Information is provided about Highways England, its work and some of the key competencies and capabilities needed to be successful in joining and working as part of Highways England’s supply chain.

The guide does not change or replace the way that first-tier suppliers working directly for Highways England select and manage companies within their own supply chains.
