Monitoring Network Rail performance

Monitoring Network Rail's performance is a key role for us. We monitor Network Rail's performance on a continuous basis - against targets in the most recent access charges review, against obligations in its network licence and against forecasts in its own business plan.

We monitor through analysis of regular reports from Network Rail.

Network Rail Monitor

The Monitor sets out how we think Network Rail is doing in delivering its obligations to its customers and funders, and highlights any areas of concern.

Route-level efficiency benefit sharing (REBS) mechanism

As part of our 2013 periodic review (PR13), we decided to replace the existing efficiency benefit sharing mechanism (EBSM) with a route level incentive mechanism for control period 5 (CP5), which runs from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2019.
