Industry Day is an annual event held by VRE to present upcoming procurement opportunities and provide an opportunity for industry leaders to engage in a robust and open dialogue about business opportunities with VRE.

This year, VRE and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) will host Rail Industry Day jointly. Attendance is open to all members of the contractor community interested in participating in rail improvement projects in Virginia. Firms are asked to limit participation to two staff members.

Attendees will hear how both agencies’ projects align with those in the Commonwealth’s $3.7 billion Transforming Rail in Virginia initiative and topics will focus on upcoming procurements from DRPT, on behalf of the Virginia Passenger Rail Authority, and VRE. Presentations will include information on the Long Bridge Project; track projects in Alexandria and Franconia-Springfield; station improvements at Alexandria, Broad Run, Franconia-Springfield, and Fredericksburg; parking expansion at Manassas Park; and a General Planning Consultant procurement. Other topics to be addressed include DRPT and VRE’s procurement policies and subcontractor utilization goals for firms qualifying under the federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprises or state Small, Women-owned and Minority-Owned programs.
