The strategy for the procurement of first-generation DCC service providers is currently being prepared by my officials in DECC, with input from stakeholders and from Infrastructure UK, who have expertise in large-scale public sector procurement. We intend to complete the strategy and begin the procurement process as soon as practicable. We will set out further details of the process and the timetable for the procurement process when we are in a position to do so.
