Responsibility for the negotiation of the nitty-gritty of the contract sits with the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment because it is the tendering Department. Our role will be to ensure, as the work progresses, that we are satisfied that it is progressing in line with two considerations - the public spending code and the assumptions laid out in the cost-benefit analysis. When a final recommendation is made by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, we will be involved in assessing it against these considerations before a decision is made by the other Department and the Government.
