CIO, Strategy and Advisory, Transportation and Travel and Leisure

In October 2012, following the cancellation of the award of the InterCity West Coast rail franchise to FirstGroup by the United Kingdom's Department for Transport, the Transport Secretary commissioned Richard Brown, Chair of Eurostar International Limited, to conduct an independent review of the implications of this failure for the future of the UK rail franchising model. In this paper, our transportation consultants analyze the Brown Review of the Rail Franchising Program, including its specific advice on improvements and recommendations that will change the way technology supports bidding for, and running, rail franchises.
