Translation of high level guidance to specific policy areas - Dan Galston - SD0102

Description
Request for £3.3k from the CSA’s Challenge Fund

The money is to pay for a peer reviewer for one of the projects funded under the Defra Cranfield Risk Centre. The money is required to pay for an expert peer reviewer, Dr Dan Galston to provide expert review input to the editorial board (on which Emma Hennessey is a member) of Green Leaves III (Revised Departmental guidance on environmental risk management). The production of Green Leaves III is a key deliverable of the Cranfield contract.

Work to be done
Dr Galston will review drafts (no more than two), provide a practitioner end-user focus, consider the translation of high level guidance to specific policy areas, review the practicability of the guidance offered and comment on the balance between analytic and deliberative approaches to risk management discussed in the document. Much of the input will be through commentary at three editorial meetings to be arranged in London. Dr Galson’s input will be particularly valuable given his use of Green Leaves II and its accompanying guidance on the reauthorisation of near surface radioactive waste repositories. As someone overseeing the regulatory review of BNFL’s post-closure risk assessment for the reauthorisation of Drigg, Dr Galson has first-hand experience of implementing Government risk management guidelines in an operational context.

Breakdown of costs
Day rate £1000 per day, and will require 3 days input.
T&S for meetings in London (return travel only from Cambridgeshire at about £100 per return trip)

A CV for Dr Galston is attached.
