Next Generation Supplier Arrangement (NGSA) Project

This submission describes the project, led by Defra Group Commercial (DgC), which developed and delivered an ambitious approach to support delivery of the Environment Agency’s high profile Flood and Coastal Risk Management works. The new commercial model is delivering a number of benefits through its collaborative approach which sees DgC, the Environment Agency Client, and Delivery Partners working together in co-located teams delivering together throughout the project lifecycle. This collaboration allows the Environment Agency to protect more homes and businesses from devastating flooding, attract greater partnership funding, exceed challenging efficiency targets, and develop solutions to achieve net-zero carbon by 2030.
