MOSL board gives OK for bilaterals to progress to planning phase

The bilaterals programme – to improve arrangements governing operational transactions between wholesalers and retailers in the non household market in England – last week entered the planning phase after the MOSL board approved the ‘outline business case’. MOSL said its analysis concluded that there is a strong business case for the programme in both financial and non-financial terms at this stage in the process.

MOSL will now begin developing the ‘full business case’ for consideration by the board at the end of September. It said: “The bilaterals programme is one of the most fundamental developments since the market opened and central to our objective to make the market easier to do business in.”
