NORTHEAST CORRIDOR HIGH SPEED RAIL PASSENGER IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT DEMAND/SUPPLY STUDY
The report presents the results of a demand/supply analysis of the major materials and equipment required by the Northeast Corridor rail passenger service improvement program. The purpose of the study is to identify those items (1) where design and specifications, and production lead-times may have a major impact on delivery and price, and (2) where development of long-term procurement arrangements with suppliers is essential to assure continuity of supplies during the 1976-82 time period because of the possible emergence of capacity bottlenecks. This study is also intended to assist in the development of alternatives to de facto cost plus pricing proposals by suppliers of materials and equipment, especially those involving long lead-times.
