The NDA uses an approach based on HM Treasury’s standard methodology for making investments when it assesses whether to fund socio-economic projects. This means that we look at all applications in five ways. We look at the:
Strategic case for the project
Economic case for the project
Commercial case for the project
Financial case for the project
Management case for the project

Finally, we expect you to be able to substantiate claims made in this application. All projects are different, and evidence of claims can be presented differently. Suitable forms of evidence may include: accounts, annual reports, websites, letters of support, or evidence from surveys or feasibility studies.

Strategic Case

Strategic Case Details

Local strategy excerpt, IMD data or other economic or social data





Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) will only consider funding projects that fit with our community investment funding criteria. Please provide a summary of outcomes of the project, showing how they fit with our themes. Later on in this form, there are some more precise questions about expected project outcomes. Please note that we make a distinction between outputs and outcomes. An output is what a project delivers (eg training young people) and an outcome is what changes as a result (for example, people use the training to get a better job). 

Please use the table below to indicate the intended outcomes of the project you are seeking funding for. For example, if your project is intended to create new jobs, include an estimate of the total number of people who you think will gain employment as a result of the project (converted into full-time equivalents). This should include the people employed directly on the project, but also the new jobs created. 

Please fill in all the measures that you think are relevant and include realistic estimates wherever you need. Give the figures you would expect if the project were a success, but be realistic. 

We appreciate that it may be difficult for you to do this accurately, but these measures are an important part of our assessment process. In asking you for this information we are trying to be clear about outcomes, but also looking at how efficient your project is likely to be (for example how many jobs will be created as a result of our funding). 

Please note that you will be expected to report on these outcomes as part of the project evaluation and monitoring.   


The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority(NDA)/ Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) will only consider funding projects that fit with community investment funding themes. Please provide a summary of outcomes of the project, showing how they fit with our themes.

Economic Case

This section of the form is designed to help us assess the economic costs and benefits of the project to the local community. It covers: 

Why RWM support is needed and what the likely economic/social/environmental impacts would be due to a lack of any support?

Information to demonstrate why your organisation cannot fund the project itself

That other methods to achieve the same/similar outcomes have been ruled out

That you have thought about other ways to deliver the outcomes of your proposed project and have ruled them out for sensible reasons. 

How much of the expected outcomes might happen anyway without RWM support

Is there a more appropriate body/route?

We are expecting to see:

Clear and credible milestones and delivery dates
What (if any) procurement is required and is there a procurement strategy
Identification of risks and a plan to mitigate against them

For larger applications (£200,000 plus) we expect you to annex a self-standing business case going into more detail. In any event, use our guidance to help you understand our requirements. For particularly large applications, you may wish to look at the HM Treasury general rules for project appraisal, sometimes known as the “Green Book”, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-green-book-appraisal-and-evaluation-in-central-governent. However, applicants are under no obligation to follow the full Green Book methodology and should be able to rely on our specific guidance.

Finally, we expect you to be able to substantiate claims made in this application. All projects are different, and evidence of claims can be presented differently. Suitable forms of evidence may include: accounts, annual reports, websites, letters of support, or evidence from surveys or feasibility studies.
