Transport Focus Insight Preferred Supplier List

Transport Focus has a preferred supplier list (PSL) of pre-qualified research providers to undertake various projects within our research programme. The PSL enables Transport Focus to procure non-OJEU research contracts by breaking research into types (quantitative and qualitative).

There are two lots within the PSL covering ad hoc quantitative and qualitative projects for all modes of public transport with a focus on rail, bus, coach, tram and road users.

Lot 1 – Qualitative projects – maximum limit of eight suppliers

Lot 2 – Quantitative projects – maximum limit of eight suppliers

We last reviewed  the PSL in 2018 and expect to do so again in 2021.
