note ORR/99/15

The Rail Regulator, Chris Bolt, today announced the appointment of Booz-Allen and Hamilton (BAH) to carry out an assessment of Railtrack’s future expenditure needs and the scope for efficiency savings for the period from 2001. This project follows on from the work which BAH carried out previously, reviewing Railtrack’s stewardship of the network in the period from 1995 to 2001. Both projects are important inputs into the periodic review of Railtrack’s access charges which the Regulator is currently carrying out, and on which he is due to reach conclusions in July 2000.

Notes for editors:

1. The periodic review is the process which the Regulator carries out in order to determine the level of Railtrack’s access charges to franchised passenger train operators.

2. On 13 April 1999 the Regulator published the report which Booz-Allen and Hamilton prepared on Railtrack’s performance in the period 1995 to 2001. The report and the press notice which accompanied its publication are available on the ORR website at

3. Booz-Allen and Hamilton is an international management and technology consultancy with worldwide experience of railway asset management and efficiency studies.
