Transport for Wales - Find out how you can engage with our new supply chain platform

Overview

Cost: Free

In order to help us deliver and grow a diverse and sustainable supply chain, we’re planning a series of interactive virtual TfW Supply Chain Platform events to ensure we’re collaborating together and addressing topical themes that will help your organisation work with Transport for Wales  and provide a platform for you to engage with us and ask questions.

We want to ensure that we’re engaging with a diverse supply chain, and how you can access the opportunities that are available for you. Information on work packages can be found in the additional pages- section and on the TfW project page on the Sell2Wales portal.

Each Supply Chain Platform event will cover different themes and the first five are shown below. Our supply chain will then help shape future themes with which they feel they require extra support.  

Business Wales  and Sell2Wales will be supporting the event and provide advice for bidding as well as general and specialist business advice

The duration of each event will be 1½ hours to cover the following:

  • Sell2Wales Tour               - 10 mins
  • TfW Theme                      - 40 mins
  • External Support              - 10 mins
  • Engage through Q&A        - 30 mins

 

 

Background:

We’re a not-for-profit company that is wholly owned by the Welsh Government.  We provide support and expertise to the Welsh Government and other key stakeholders on all transport-related infrastructure, including but not limited to the South Wales Metro. We’re one of the delivery elements of the Welsh Government's vision for delivering a transformational, integrated transport system in Wales, providing high-quality, safe, affordable and sustainable transport for all.

Collaboration through TfW Supplier Exchange portal

11.30 - 13.00, 7 May 2021

We understand the value a collaboration can bring. However, there needs to be a consideration of time required to form a collaboration and how you need to respond in tenders.  A TfW Supplier Exchange portal has been set up to help our supply chain partners collaborate with each other to understand other businesses strengths and challenges, with a view of forming partnerships where appropriate that benefits all parties.

We’re keen to understand how the supply chain can contribute to potential solutions to our challenges.
