DCC’s Switching Programme continues to progress with the appointment of Expleo as the Core Systems Assurance (CSA) provider. Their remit is to give Ofgem confidence in the delivery of the Core Systems services ensuring the Design, Build and Testing (DBT) phase of the Switching Programme is delivered to cost, time and quality.
DCC is Ofgem’s key delivery partner for the UK’s faster and more reliable Switching Programme which will radically transform current switching arrangements and enable faster dual fuel switching for energy consumers. This entails the creation of a new Centralised Switching Service (CSS) that will replace existing gas and electricity switching arrangements currently in place with a single, consistent and cost-efficient system.
The CSA Provider will play a vital role in providing governance and independent assurance through the DBT and early life support phase of the Programme. Importantly it will provide an opinion to Ofgem which they will rely on to inform their decision on whether the Switching Arrangements should go live. DCC look forward to working with them in in this exciting phase of the programme.
