Thameslink Southern Great Northern Franchise competition (TSGN)

Fantastic experience of managing the award winning project to tender the largest train operating franchise in the UK.  This commercial transaction project for the DfT involved the bringing together of two existing, large train operations serving the north and south of London and beyond, to delivery a single operator that could manage the transitional operations of the Thameslink franchise.  This set under a background of a department under stress from a previous competition debacle. We helped to understand and map a new and improved assurance and governance process that in turn delivered a robust competition.
