Call for Development Group Members – Guideline Requirements for Procurement of Rolling Stock

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a RISSB Development Group to draft a Guideline – Requirements for Procurement of Rolling Stock.

Overview
The objective of the exercise is to develop a Guideline that would recommend a standard structure for creating a procurement specification for rolling stock.

The publication will assist the Australian rail industry to more efficiently and effectively communicate their technical requirements by nominating a standardised way to structure a procurement specification, with recommended wording/syntax and a recommended Product Breakdown Structure.

How to contribute
Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the Guideline.

DG membership is voluntary and requires the support of your employer organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period, 2 face-to-face, expected in September 2019 and December 2019, and 2 teleconference sessions anticipated for June 2019 and January 2020.

Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.
