Our Commissioning Intentions sets out our most significant commissioning and procurement exercises that we intend to carry out, including when we anticipate beginning a commissioning conversation with the market. The document will be refreshed 6 monthly so that stakeholders can more easily plan for and engage in the very early stages of the commissioning design process.
Our Commissioning Intentions are derived from our wider Contract Register (see section below) where you can see details of all existing contracts which we expect to come to an end for the next three years. The information in the Contracts Register is only ever indicative, but gives a good sense of what is likely to be happening and when.
