SOCIAL VALUE: MOVING ON FROM THE GREEN BOOK   

 

REPORT FROM THE INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM 

HM Treasury’s Green Book needs updating to capture a better assessment of the social value of infrastructure projects

 

In terms of attempting to measure the economic benefits and social costs of projects, things have moved on since the Green Book was designed. We recommend that government establishes an expert working group to design a clearly written, up to date model to assist those putting forward proposals.

 

The report sets out six ways to improve the Green Book approach and shows how the Social Value Act could be amended to require public procurers to introduce the new approach.

IDEAS AND POLICY ADVICE

BEIS CONSULTATION ON THE RAB MODEL FOR NUCLEAR

RESPONSE FROM THE INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM 

The Infrastructure Forum's RAB Working Group has submitted its response to the BEIS Consultation on the RAB Model for Nuclear. 

 

The Working Group, comprised of experts in infrastructure finance with particular knowledge of the RAB model, UK regulatory framework and delivery of greenfield projects, considered questions posed by the consultation on the structuring of the model as well as broader Critical Success Factors necessary for setting up an investable nuclear RAB.

 

Particular focus was given to: the incentive mechanisms which facilitate the delivery of Value for Money for consumers, investors, the project developer and Government; ensuring a robust and credible Economic Regulatory Regime; the investability of the model; importance of a sustainable supply chain; and political support for a UK new nuclear programme.
