The Restoration and Renewal Programme has been established to tackle the significant work that needs to be carried out to protect and preserve the heritage of the Palace of Westminster and ensure it can continue to serve as home to the UK Parliament in the 21st century.

Parliament has authorised the establishment of a Delivery Authority and Sponsor Body, to manage the work. The Sponsor Body will establish a governance and assurance structure to provide assurance to itself and other key stakeholders that the development and delivery of the Programme is meeting its requirements and provides value for money. As part of this governance and assurance structure the Sponsor will appoint a Programme Representative (P-Rep) whose role is to provide continuous independent scrutiny of the delivery of the Programme by the Delivery Authority.

The NDD must be submitted as a correspondence and a declaration must also be submitted, stating that the NDD has not been modified. Access to the tender documents will not be granted until the signed NDD has been received.
