Together we'll get even further 

Our vision on partnerships 

The quality of the railway network is our top priority. It’s only logical: it has a direct impact on the safety and punctuality of our trains. That’s why we only work with the best materials and the most knowledgeable suppliers. We also work closely with contractors: they’re responsible for the maintenance and renovation work on the railway infrastructure. They are also charged with the development of projects to expand the railway network. 

How to work with us (SAP Ariba)?

Code of conduct and safety

Becoming a supplier

Procedures

Great that you want to join the Infrabel team! 

Although we admit that the job isn't done in one day. As a government-owned company we are obliged to comply with a number of procedures. That is why we are happy to give you 3 options for becoming a supplier.
 

  1. Do you have a question, or would you like to register as a supplier? Please fill out this contact form. (Once we've examined your registration, you'll be eligible for an assignment without publication.)
     
  2. Register for an assignment that you found on one of these websites:
    • e-Procurement: for all public procurement contracts published at Belgian and European level
    • PB EU: Official Journal of the European Union for all contracts published at European level
       
  3. Infrabel uses Ariba as a platform to manage their sourcing process.
    All the suppliers involved in the future sourcing process must register to the Ariba Network.
    The candidates / suppliers will receive an invitation to register on the Ariba Network.

    Following the registration procedure is mandatory.
     
  4. As a supplier of products or strategic services you can also participate in a qualification procedure that is completely independent of a purchase. When a purchase of these products or services subsequently takes place, only qualified companies are consulted. Want to know more about the legislation on public procurement? We are happy to refer you to the federal government's website.

Qualification procedure for suppliers

Would your company like to submit an application for selection in a qualification system? Send an e-mail to qualifications@infrabel.be. Always state for which qualification system you are applying.

An employee from our 'Qualifications' service will then provide you with the administrative and technical specifications. In it you will find a description of the tests and processes of the qualification. After receiving the administrative and technical files, one of the services involved will start the evaluation.

Please note: if we make use of the selection through the qualification system in a specification, only qualified companies will receive the specification. Want to know more about this? Consult the overview of existing qualification systems below. 

Some documents are only available in French and Dutch.
 

Note that INFRABEL provides here, for information purposes, the list of INFRABEL qualification systems in force, in the knowledge that the official source of publication of these qualification systems is and remains the Bulletin of Tenders (www.publicprocurement.be) and the Official Journal of the European Union (https://ted.europa.eu).

Here are the links to Infrabel's 2 publications for qualification systems on the e-procurement platform;

For certainty, it is always advisable to refer to this official source.

Procurement

As a government-owned company, we must comply with current legislation. Our procurement service makes sure of this. This allows us to open our commissions to everyone and strive for a fair and non-discriminatory policy -- one that also encourages competition.
Our procurement department is charged with the following tasks:

  • Organizing public procurement through a non-discriminatory procurement procedure
  • Establishing win-win partnerships between the internal customer (end user) and the supplier
  • Bringing internal customers into contact with suppliers who deliver high-quality products within the set time frame (just in time), so that we can carry out our work according to our planning and the multi-year investment plan
  • Striving for competitive prices
  • Improving performance quality
  • Encouraging suppliers to pursue innovation within the company
  • Carrying out a responsible purchasing policy

Utility installations third parties

There are many third-party utility installations on Infrabel's domain and under our tracks: water pipes, gas pipes, electricity cables, telecommunication cables, etc. Do you wish to install a new installation or perform maintenance work on existing installations? Below you can find our contact details and the necessary information regarding your application.


To transport gas, electricity, water and telecommunications to people's homes, companies or public spaces, there are a lot of utility lines on our domain and under our tracks. Laying new pipelines or carrying out work on these pipelines can have an impact on the stability and safety of the rail infrastructure and train traffic. That's why you must always request a permit from Infrabel. You can find the complete regulations regarding this license application in bundle 35.1 - Management of utility installations on the domain and under the tracks of Infrabel Version 1.1.

To handle these permit applications as efficiently as possible, we work both locally and centrally:

Local

Management of license applications for utility lines from third parties (including technical advice on and drafting of technical specifications regarding individual license applications, follow-up of the file, etc.)

Central

General Management (including checking and approving license applications; drafting of regulations, procedures, IT tools, etc .; networking with interest groups, intervention in legal and financial problem files, etc.)
