Due Diligence Project for Northern Rail

Andrew Walker led a team of technical, commercial and project management experts made up from Northern Rail, NedRailways (Dutch Railways) and other external consultants, in the due diligence/evaluation of a potential new supplier from China of Diesel Multiple Units for Northern Rail.

This consisted of:

  • Identifying the key requirements for Northern -
    both technically and commercially
  • Developing a matrix and questionnaire, which considered all the issues
    and whether the supplier could meet these requirements
  • Determining the pass/fail criteria
  • Leading and managing the actual process at the suppliers premises
  • Production of a report, which identified strengths and weaknesses
    of the supplier, with a clear recommendation of whether the supplier
    should be taken forward to contract stage or not.
  • De-brief the supplier of the key findings of the report and next steps.
