The EIF is a professional services framework which delivers strategic tasks and tactical tasks. Strategic tasks support multiple business areas across Sellafield Ltd and tactical tasks support single business areas in Sellafield Ltd. The EIF scope includes from the initial identification of the need through problem definition and provides focused technical and digital support/solutions and subsequent support to key decision making. The EIF is focused on the enabling of innovation rather than the delivery of innovation i.e. developing the parameters and mechanisms which will allow the achievement of innovation. As such during the problem definition and framing phase the EIF will work with the Sellafield Ltd intelligent client in providing rigour and challenge at the very front end of problem definition and optioneering to maximise opportunities for creative solutions with the capability of taking tasks to the point of ‘proof of concept’.
