Network Rail supplier performance: Full table

Today Construction News revealed the performance scores of Network Rail’s top contractors.

The contractors made up 45 of Network Rail’s 87 suppliers and joint ventures to have received a PRISM score across the 15 reporting periods up to 24 February 2018.

The PRISM score is a measure used by Network Rail to monitor the delivery performance of its contractors.

Companies are scored between one and five on a number of different performance criteria, including delivery on time, engineering assurance, health and safety, contract administration and behaviour.

Suppliers must be working on a contract that is three months or longer and has a value greater than £50,000.

In Network Rail’s full suppliers list (see table below), Bridgeway Consulting and CCS Computer Science came top of the list, both scoring a perfect 5 for the periods covered.

Cumbria-based Story Contracting was the highest-ranking contractor with an average score of 4.91 across the period.

Network Rail’s top-performing consultants included CH2M, which scored 4.89; Arcadis, with a score of 4.51, and Capita which posted a score of 4.47. 

The average score for Network Rail’s suppliers was just over 4.00, with the lowest score over the period being Morgan Sindall’s 2.47.

  • It is a shame to see this published in this way. The article fails to mention that every time a PRISM score is filled in by NR for a Contractor that Contractor also fills in a score for NR. You can easily see those who are "playing the game" with NR and scoring high marks for both teams and those who are using the PRISM system to give true and accurate scores so that improvements can be made.
