SME's play a significant role in the growth of the economy and in 2020 accounted for 60% of all private sector employment. As such Murphy is committed to providing supply chain opportunities to these enterprises.
Murphy understands the importance of ‘social value’ and its role within the supply chain and is committed to applying a greater focus throughout all major procurement activities. Social value through our supply chain will be evaluated based on qualitative responses from bidders, and not on volumes, meaning that larger suppliers will not receive an advantage based on scale alone. Bidders must set out what they will deliver and how they will deliver it and it is this information that will be scored in bid evaluations. Within our transportation sector we are committed to incorporating this into our tendering activities, introducing a 10% weighting of social value within our ITT (invitation to tender) from April 2022.
The Rail Sector Deal sets out a new approach to the rail industry and the government working in partnership to transform the rail sector by taking actions to increase the use of digital technology, boost productivity, improve the service received by those who use the railways and build the skills of the UK workforce to capitalise on these opportunities. The delivery of the Sector Deal will equip the railway for its strategic role as a driver of economic growth and to provide a positive experience for passengers and freight users through this century and beyond.
Murphy has proudly worked within the rail sector for over 60 years and supports the governments aspirations to improve the rail industry through improved passenger experience, the economy and the rail industry supply chain.
