About this Project


RailCorp faced a significant increase in capital expenditure and decided to form a program alliance to extend their capability and enable a much greater volume of project work. Following a competitive tender process, Systemix was engaged to advise on the structure of the $1B RailCorp Program Alliance (RPA) and to design and establish the selection process.


The scope of Systemix’s engagement included:>> Strategic planning
>> Assisting with RFP development
>> Owner’s team preparation
>> Proponent interviews and selection workshops
>> Developing the Proposed Compensation Framework
>> Facilitating the commercial alignment
>> Coaching the combined Novo Rail alliance team through establishment, TOC development, and ongoing delivery.


The Novo Rail consortium (Laing O’Rourke, O’Donnell Griffin and Aurecon) was selected, with all matters completed ahead of schedule.Significant volumes of work are being delivered by Novo Rail, in keeping with RailCorp’s needs.
