Assistance to Île de France for their regional passenger rail service lines

Context

Considering the 2018 law for a new railway pact, the Ile-de-France railway network is to be gradually put out to tender between 1 January 2023 and 1 January 2040. Within this framework, Ile-de-France Mobilités has decided to proceed with a rapid, progressive and continuous competitive bidding process for the entire network excluding RER A and B between 2023 and 2033.

Ile-de-France Mobilités is therefore looking for :

  • Project management assistance capable of providing legal, technical, financial, strategic and project management skills to prepare and support the implementation of the public service contracts for the first lots put out to tender.
  • Long-term support that will enable it to provide assistance for each batch from start to finish and to benefit from a learning effect from one batch to the next, as well as an increase in the skills of its teams.
