NDA Business Plan Sets Out Goals For Dounreay Clean-up

1st April 2012

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority today publishes its business plan for 2012/13, setting out key clean-up goals for sites such as Dounreay to achieve.

"Our business plan for 2012/2013 sees us entering into the second year of funding allocated in the last spending review," says NDA chief executive John Clarke.

"This allows for an average expenditure of almost 3 billion a year (over all the NDa controlled sites) in real terms over a four-year period. The amount for Dounreay in 2012/13 is 161million.

The focus of this year's business plan remains unchanged from last year, with the emphasis on delivery of commitments."
