Franchise agreement and additional legal documents for Abellio East Anglia Limited. This agreement replaces the previous franchise agreement concluded by Greater Anglia in 2014. The updated terms of the Greater Anglia National Rail Franchise have been updated in version 5.5, which contains an amendment to Annex 1 of Annex 5.9 to increase funding for the STNR programme. In August 2016, the Department for Transport (DfT) awarded the East Anglia contract to Abellio. The new franchise, known as “Greater Anglia”, started in October and will run for nine years. In March 2017, Abellio sold 40% of the franchise to the Japanese company Mitsui, but retains a majority stake with the remaining 60%. This has no bearing on the commitments made under the franchise and Abellio states that there have always been plans to operate the franchise as part of a joint venture. The disputed clause in the Greater Anglia contract combines additional deductible payments with London`s employment figures. The East Anglia 2016 Rail Franchise Agreement replaced the East Anglia 2014 Rail Franchise Agreement. When the tender resumed, it was time for a short-term franchise that would give the government time to plan changes in rail franchising policy based on Roy McNultys Rail Value for Money Study. It also included the period of the 2012 Olympic Games. The franchise was originally scheduled to run from February 5, 2012 to July 2014.  In June 2010, after the 2010 parliamentary elections, the Ministry of Transport announced that the procedure for replacing the franchise would be suspended until a review of the franchise procedure was necessary, which would result in an extension until February 2012.
