Description: The objective of the Parent Body Organisation (PBO) competition was to secure a reduction in costs measured against the extant baselines of Magnox and RSRL. The performance obligations associated with delivery of this objective are embodied within a Client Specification which forms the basis of the Site Licence Company Agreement (SLCA) and Parent Body Agreement (PBA). Following the application of competitive tension via the competition process, it is intended that a target cost incentivised pricing arrangement will be put in place for delivery of the performance obligations of the contract at a lower target cost as compared against the extant baselines for Magnox and RSRL. A maximum contract period of 14 years is contemplated with an initial term of some 7 years. Current anticipated funding requirements for the initial period of the contract is circa £4 Billion but this will be adjusted to approximately £2.4 Billion (the Target Cost bid for phase 1) with the addition of some reconciliation items following Due Diligence and consolidation of the contractors delivery plan. Following award of contract, there will be provision for mid-term break points at the sole discretion of NDA at low cost on two years notice. Discussions with HMG concluded that the competition should be conducted against the current Magnox baseline and the optimised RSRL baseline with the expectation of securing at least a 5% reduction as a result of competition. Contract was awarded on 1st September 2014. The final savings opportunities offered by the winning bid are of the order of 35%.
