Description: The objective of the procurement was to secure a reduction in the cost and time to take Dounreay site to its interim end state by securing a new PBO for the Site Licence Company (SLC) at Dounreay, Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL). Associated with this was to be replacement of the cost re-imbursible Management and Operations contract with a Target Cost/Incentivised Fee contract which transferred elements of risk currently held by NDA/HMG to the private sector. The then plan reflected the cost at £3.5BN and being achieved by 2038. The terms of the contract notice required achievement of the interim end state by 2032 with a maximum annual cost of £150m. The successful bid (by BDP (Babcock Dounreay Partnership)) reduced the cost by circa £ 1 billion and brought the interim end state date forward to 2023-2025 although developments during the bidding process which the tenderers could not allow for due to their maturity are yet to be factored in via approved change control.
