The main purpose of the SBC is to investigate the options that were endorsed by the EIP. The SBC details greater information on the options presented in the EIP. It also provides justification of expenditure to proceed to a Detailed Business Case and the recommendation of a preferred option(s). The SBC may include clarifying location - narrowing down the geographical location where this is not obvious from the screen - or financing options such as Private Financing Initiatives (PFI), leasing or Defence build options. Captial Facilites Infrastructure (CFI) Project Officers are responsible for the development of the SBC, but rely heavily on Consultant and Stakeholder input.
