The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) is currently running a competition to select a new parent body organisation (PBO) for the Sellafield Site Licence Company, which through ownership will enhance Site Licence Company performance.

The announcement of a preferred bidder for the Sellafield PBO Competition is scheduled to take place in July 2008. Following the announcement of the preferred bidder, the NDA expects to complete contract finalisation over the summer period and plans to announce the contract award in October 2008. The decision will require Government approval.
