2 Today’s Discussion Points NDA’s Strategy - Strategic ThemesStrategy Content – Expectations over 20 yearsThe delivery model – recapFeedback on strategy development infrastructureStrategy development priorities for each ThemeImmediate next steps
9 10 and 20 year expectations (AS AT 2011) During the next 10 years (by 2021) we expect:all Magnox stations to have been defuelled and spent fuel reprocessed to a long-term stable formthree of the Magnox sites to have entered the Care and Maintenance phase in readiness for Final Site Clearancesignificant progress to have been made on high hazard reduction programmes, this includes progress with the retrieval of materials from Legacy Ponds and Silos at Sellafield.the management of all NDA sites to have been competedall NDA’s non core assets to have been disposed ofto commence Surface-Based Investigations Phase for the Geological Disposal Facility (GDF).
10 10 and 20 year expectations (AS AT 2011) During the next 20 years (by 2031) we expect:all other Magnox sites to have entered Care and Maintenancedecommissioning to have been completed at Harwell and Winfrithat Dounreay, all ILW to have been removed from the shaft and all residues from the Dounreay Fast Reactor (DFR)at LLWR, the Plutonium Contaminated Material (PCM) facilities to have been removedconfirmation of a site’s suitability to host a Geological Disposal Facility that complies with safety and environmental regulatory requirements, and commence the Construction and Underground Investigations Phase.FOR MORE DETAILED, RECENT AND SITE BY SITE TARGETS GO ONLINE FOR OUR STRATEGY AND OUR ANNUAL BUSINESS PLAN.
11 Implementation – NDA’s Intelligent Client Model NDA Operating modelImplementation – NDA’s Intelligent Client Model- Long term scenario planning- Options development- Performance contracts- Performance monitoring- Deep dive assurance reports- Performance & financial reporting- Corporate Planning- Securing & allocating funds- Operational planning- Sanctioning of major projects- Post project approval reports- Selecting delivery partners- Contract Incentivisation11

13 Strategy development infrastructure - SDIG, TOGs, underpinning groups and R&D interfaces
14 1 Feedback Received - Positive Strategy development infrastructure has served us well, thematic approach is good, MOD has adopted similar.Overall shape and structure of strategy development mechanics is comprehensive and involves participation from the relevant parties.Engagement works well - TOGs are a good fora.Gated process is good.Engagement with NDA on strategic issues good, MOD continues to increase participation in TOGs.NDA strategy team people are professional, proactive and pivotal.SDIG provides helpful briefing and opportunity for discussion.Strategy content is good – no issues.
16 2 Further improvements planned for 2013 Create a Site Restoration Roadmap in order to provide better visibility of the strategic issues and risks that drive our Strategy Development work.Create and maintain an integrated strategy development workplan for use at SDIG and TOGs.Report progress against the strategy development workplan.Make NDA’s Strategic decision calendars (and SLC decision calendars) more visible and accessible. Use strategic tolerances and dashboards to provide Strategy implementation feedback to SDIGCritical enablers TOG - make it work.Start to consider approach to next version of NDA’s published strategy.
17 Site Restoration Roadmap – within the Strategy Development Cycle
18 Site Restoration Roadmap What is a roadmap?A communication tool that conveys the restoration strategy for our estate. It demonstrates the key milestones to be achieved and the attributes of each site as restoration progresses.What will it be used for?To provide an accessible, clear representation of the restoration journey for each of our sites.To inform NDA’s strategy development planning, by helping us to systematically identify risks and opportunities in the current plans and allowing us to map out the consequence of implementing strategic alternatives.Our current strategy development priorities are developed using expert professional judgement but would benefit from a roadmap to help with systematic identification of risks and opportunities
19 Strategy Development Topics - Spent Fuel and Nuclear Materials ▪ Potential new build scope
