Moorhouse successfully secures a place on the UK Government STARTwo Framework.

We are delighted to announce that we have successfully secured a place on UK Government STARTwo framework to provide commercial advice for Transport.

STAR stands for Specialist Technical Advisory for Rail. It is a Department for Transport (DfT) framework that was introduced in 2015 to increase value for money,  and ‘liberate the supply chain’ by increasing competition & SME use across Rail. 

The framework has been considered widely successful, and to continue its application a new version is being adopted, and funding phased through to this framework from STAR. This new version is, very originally, STARTwo. 

Securing a place on the framework reflects our strong track record and expertise of helping our clients with their most strategic challenges and delivering sustainable change in the Rail sector, which forms part of the wider Transport offering at Moorhouse. An example of our work in this area is shown as supported Transport for the North to develop a Brand Strategy to drive their new customer propositions .

“Being one of a handful of organisations to have secured a place in this lot is a testament to the excellent work our teams do with our clients, supporting our ambition to grow in this sector and continue to work on the most complex transport consulting engagements that ultimately deliver public real value” said Simon Webb, Client Director and Transport Sector Lead.

Jason Byrne, Partner, adds “We are continuing to strengthen our position in the market and being able to secure a slot on a competitive framework such as STARTwo demonstrates the fantastic work that we continue to deliver for our Transport clients. Our people are at the heart of what we do and that is what differentiates us in this challenging industry, this will now give us the opportunity to further expand our work and continue to grow as a leading management consulting firm.”

Please get in touch with Jason or Simon to find out more about STARTwo or our work more broadly in Transport.
