Department for Transport officials meet First Great Western at least every four weeks to review overall progress of the franchise. Departmental officials also meet First Great Western at the milestone reporting sessions contractualised in the Remedial Agreement to review progress in reducing train cancellations against the provisions of that agreement. First Great Western is currently compliant with the cancellations reduction trajectory contained in the Remedial Agreement.
