Major buyers hear about enhanced RISQS


Nearly fifty major buyers from across the GB rail industry heard about enhancements being delivered to the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS).

Attendees were the first to see a demonstration of the new RISQS platform that is quicker, easier and more efficient to use and features significant new functionality.

Network Rail and TfL provided messages of support at the event held to explain the improvements which will be introduced on May 1, 2018.

Events for supplier members begin this Thursday (2nd) in Bristol; London on November 3 and 6; Doncaster on the 8th; Glasgow on the 13th; and finally Birmingham on the 16th. Some places are still available and can be booked via the RISQS website here under the “events” tab.

Members at the events will hear details of the state-of-the-art platform currently being developed by new provider Altius, including significant upgrades to the search functionality, tools that allow buyers to easily and quickly build additional information requests to suppliers, functionality to help suppliers with PAS91, and value-adding features like notice of EU tenders provided for free.

Capita, who will be providing audit services, will also be providing details of how their high-quality auditors, using the latest software, will provide consistency of audit experience.
