Programme Delivery Model

Broadband Delivery Programme

    • Provide guidelines on the range of activities required for the successful delivery of broadband projects ensuring that this covers the various phases through development of the project sourcing, implementation, operation and evaluation; and

    • Facilitate network activity across local body project teams to ensure appropriate dialogue and sharing of best practice.

      • 4.2.2

        Principle 2: Encourage a strategic approach to local delivery:

        • Set out clear linkages between the Commission‟s Europe 2020 Strategy2 and the strategy for the Broadband Delivery Programme and how these relate to Local Broadband Plans;

        • Ensure that Local Broadband Plans support the Best in Europe Superfast Broadband network coverage objective, and maximise the economic benefits to local areas;

        • Provide guidance on the scope and content for the development of Local Broadband Plans by local bodies;

        • Allow for the phasing of the delivery of projects under Local Broadband Plans where this means delivery of manageable and affordable phases within a consistent overall plan;

        • Promote the understanding of a strategic approach to Superfast Broadband across the full range of local body roles and responsibilities. E.g. e-service delivery, social inclusion, economic development etc;

        • Encourage local bodies to work together where this would increase the efficiency of the development and delivery of Local Broadband Plans; and

        • Provide advice and guidance on making use of available or planned networks for public sector use.

        Principle 4: Maximise the impact on investment of available BDUK funding:

        • Avoid substituting for private sector investment that would have occurred by investing public funds in areas which are less likely to become commercially attractive;

        • Incentivise local bodies to maximise use of additional available funding, including EU structural funds and investment from local sources in the public and private sectors when developing projects;

        • Stimulate investment in networks that offer wholesale access; and
