New Organisation Design for the NDA
10 January 2007
Since its establishment on 1st April 2005, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has focussed on building its resources, setting up its systems and procedures and developing its Strategy.
This was achieved using an organisational structure that was based on a need to gather an in-depth understanding of the 20 sites for which we are responsible and in managing the associated contracts.
As the NDA moves out of its start up phase and into ‘delivery’, the management team has reviewed the priorities and resources needed to meet its challenges and this has resulted in a review of the organisation’s design.
Key to that review is the need to re-shape the interface between the NDA and its contractors. NDA Directors agreed that the focus of the organisation should be towards Site Licence Companies rather than to the individual sites. The new structure will give us the appropriate resources and skills needed to take forward the business of establishing the new Site Licence Companies; to run the competitions through to the award of contract and transition; and, then to manage the new contract.
Within the review, the NDA has sought to identify opportunities to improve its effectiveness and seek economies of scale where possible, and also to strengthen in certain areas to reflect the additional responsibilities we have been handed or where experience has told us more resources are needed.
By replacing consultants and interim staff with permanent positions we are able to strengthen the NDA’s long term capability whilst staying within our operating budget for 2006/7.
