The ESS launched the Neutron Optics and Shielding Group (NOSG) project with the provision of polarised 3He gas in the project scope. The goal is to supply 3He to the instrument suite, and provide the associated technical support equipment and personnel. However, during the priortisiation activites and budget allocations during 2012-2013, it quickly emerged that there were higher priorities for the management to consider in the allocation of funding. 3He activities were consequently allocated to ``scope contingency'' category in the NOSG project. This means that the activities would be postponed until the prioritisation needs to be changed, and funding may be reallocated at a later stage, but the budget would be set to zero for the $^3$He activities in the first instance.

This report very briefly describes how the strategy for provision of polarised 3He will be handled during the ramp up to operations at ESS, in light of this budget situation.
