The NDA and Government departments will be working within current spending round provisions until the next spending round period begins. The NDA currently funds the Nirex programme of work, so short term funding provisions require few changes. The CSR07 process provides the DTI (and other Departments involved in taking forward the next stages of repository concept development) with the opportunity to bid for funding to meet their policy priorities.
