Crossrail aims to bring a new world-class railway to the London area. It requires its contractors to deliver Community Investment Programs (CIPs) to give back to the communities in which they work. Our goal was to develop an assessment system to evaluate the impact of CIPs on local communities. We conducted research in several boroughs affected by CIPs in order to understand the needs of the community. We interviewed contractors and a local governmental official, surveyed community members, and engaged in on-going CIPs. After collecting and analyzing our data, we classified CIPs into four categories, and identified potential outcomes and indicators to assess the impact of CIPs on communities.
