The Transport Security, Resilience and Response (TSRR) within DfT, leads on national security matters, ranging from counter terrorism and cyber security to planning for and responding to natural hazards or civil contingencies. We deliver expertise to support security and resilience policy teams whilst also providing the department's 24/7 response for all security or civil contingency incidents. The team works with security and intelligence partners from across government to mitigate risk to the UK’s transport sector.

The aim of this procurement is to run a Rail Security Exercise project which will be overseen by the Research, Analysis and Development (RAD) team within DfT. RAD are a team of scientists responsible for providing data and evidence that support decisions around maintaining a safe and secure transport infrastructure. The Department for Transport (DfT) invites proposals for the Rail Security Exercise project. The anticipated value of the project is approximately £80,000. This value is given in good faith as a guide to aid Tenderer’s planning for submitting their Tender. It should not be interpreted as an undertaking to purchase any goods or services to any value and does not form part of the Contract.
