DCC publishes its Design Baseline 2 DCC Switching Business Case

Monday 12 February

DCC has published its rebaselined Business Case for its activities during the Transitional Phase of the Switching Programme. It follows the confirmation of the Reform Package 2a as the preferred solution and sets out the updated planned activities, timelines and costs until May 2019 when the contract for the new Central Switching Service (CSS) is planned for signature. We have developed the Business Case in consultation with Ofgem and industry and we will continue to report regularly to industry and Ofgem to ensure our performance, costs and timelines are kept under close review.

DCC is a key delivery partner for the Ofgem Switching Programme. DCC is contributing to the design of the end-to-end switching arrangements and will be delivering the design and procurement of a CRS which will underpin the new arrangements
