Policy areas

Data and Communications Company (DCC) is required to report price control information by 31 July, following each regulatory year.

It must report in accordance with the Regulatory Instructions and Guidance that we publish. In this document we review the costs DCC reported for regulatory year 2016/17 and set out our proposals.

We then assess DCC’s performance against a set of implementation milestones. DCC can also propose an adjustment to its baseline margin values. We assess this proposal and determine whether or not to change the level of margin values agreed when the licence was awarded. We also explain our assessment of DCC’s application to change its External Contract Gain Share values. 

We welcome your views on our proposals, and will consider them when we take our decision.
