— analysing notifications of proposed changes to NER 300 projects, especially from a technological point of view but in some cases also from a financial point of view. Substantial and justified notifications of changes to projects can result in amendments to the NER 300 award decisions, to be drafted by the Commission considering the contractor's analysis,
