Description: Changing the model for engaging the private sector at the Sellafield Site from the current Parent Body Organisation model to a new Market Enhanced Site Licenced Company characterised by public sector retention of the uncertainties intrinsically associated with Sellafield.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: This complex programme of work is pregressing well through the consolidation phase and the decision in Q3 to undertake an IPA Project Initiation Routemapping exercise, concluding in Q1 17/18, will ensure we have created the delivery environment best suited to a transformation of this nature. Sellafield, supported by NDA, continue to work on the transformation proposition and vision, and to work with senior government officials, to secure the guiding coalition and the delivery controls and reporting required for successful delivery. This will be concluded by September 2017, within the original 12-18 month estimate set out in SMC.
Start date: 2015-01-13
End date: 2017-05-24
Schedule text: In 2014, the original Sellafield Model Change programme set out four tranches (decision, transition, consolidation and transformation); we are now ten months into the 18 month schedule for Tranche 3 – Consolidation, during which SL and NDA are implementing and refining the subsidiary arrangements and planning for the very substantial challenges of long term transformation. The overall approach to Transformation is making good progress towards delivering real impact in FY 17/18, and leading further work in defining the critical activities and capabilities required in the longer term. Driven by the need to implement a better way to deliver three specific time critical projects, a proposed approach for improving project delivery at Sellafield was brought forwards for an approval in advance of the wider transformation proposition. Sellafield, supported by NDA, continue to work on the transformation proposition and vision, and to work with senior government officials, to secure the guiding coalition and the delivery controls and reporting required for successful delivery. This will be concluded by September 2017, within the original 12-18 month estimate set out in SMC.
