Meeting business requirements

View the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) contractor requirements and access direct opportunities through the TenderLink portal.

There are many ways to work on and with Inland Rail. Major contracts for the supply of materials, planning and environmental impact statements, signaling and construction works and other services are decided via tenders.

The ARTC is committed to using local suppliers, skills and labour, where possible, and ensuring environmental, community and economic considerations are embedded in the procurement process.

Businesses wanting to work with an Inland Rail contractor or bid for work may require specific certification and are encouraged to seek supplier support from the ARTC on how to prepare.

Indigenous small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and social enterprises can access workshops, presentations and mentoring support through the ARTC Business Capability Development Program.
